Nobody’s Perfect …And That’s Perfectly Fine (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

What if I told you the secret to life was acceptance, that’s it
To accept nature, life, and humanity for it is, so don’t quit

I am not perfect, you are not perfect, we are not perfect
It’s ridiculous to think that we spend so much time searching
I have no clue what we are searching for, maybe to be “whole”
But I know no more than you when it comes to life and such

My words are not perfect, don’t you see, I don’t always rhyme
Still, to express oneself helps connect to others in their time
Don’t strive to be her or him or them or all that isn’t like you
Live to be your fantasies and desires that don’t make you blue

Nature, as often as it creates, also destroys what is not perfect
But let us be better than our nature, embracing imperfection

INTRODUCING HEADLINER: Through the Tears (Steve Duhon - Carencro, LA)

When I find myself alone in the pain. When I feel like I have absolutely no one to turn to. When I wish the hurt would stop. When I don't know what to do. When I feel completely lost. When my eyes just won't stop welling up. When I don't want to bother anyone with my hurt, my pain. When I know that everyone has other responsibilities. I don't want to interrupt them with my hurt. When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
