We Could Have It All (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)



If you could listen to my words
If I didn’t feel a victim of my appearance
We’d discover all possibilities, vast as the ocean
Like all great sea crews of the past
Land waits to be discovered in the present
Yet we don’t know we have access to it all

We’re too busy filling up holes with patches
In the past
But one captain can’t save two sinking ships
In the present
We could have it all, if we believed right now
In the future

Harvey LeBeouf, the 8th accomplished Louisiana Words Allstar and the 2nd quickest writer to rise to this status since 2015, has brought in the most followers than any other writer in the history of Louisiana Words since 2014. He has racked in the most #1 poems and been consistently in the top 3 for Best of Week since Winter 2019. He gained Allstar status quickly having many poems under his belt with many more to come! A native of Kaplan, 27 people have joined the community ranking Kaplan at #6 in the top 10 places following. Yes! Kaplan the 1st rural town to beat out larger places like Shreveport (currently not in the top 10). Now living in Lake Charles, Harvey has also brought in 19 followers for Lake Charles ranking them #10. Both places are currently listed on the Louisiana Words Tour coming in the Winter 2020. Thank you, Harvey!
