Disease (Louis Toliver Jr. - Swartz, LA)

What is this eating at me?
This despair of death
It has taken my courage
I, at times, fear the unknown
This disease grows strong
Hopefully, I grow stronger
Longer, longer I stay
I wait for the alarm
That final ring to my maker
My flesh ready for serving
Can I be no smarter than death?
When the timer goes off
I give in too easily to grief
I am but the perfect target
I can think around this journey
I must be the better magician
An instigator of all life
The beauty in the breakdown
This disease will not win
Release my soul into the wind

Moving Forward (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

Step by step, I step     I hear the angels sing    Hope, today, they bring  Flying up with pep  I become Heaven's rep    Riding along God's wing
Moving forward can be hard     Struggling through today      Living life is not all play The fortune teller draws a card It warns that Fate has no guard     Never let pain get in your way
Flying high with my life      I am moving, so I'm living     Heart and heart, I keep giving I will one day meet my afterlife  Everyone's past contains strife       Let my future be thanksgiving
When the steps run out      I will just fly and fly and fly      I leave the past with a goodbye Up on God's wing, I won't pout  Going to heaven, I do not doubt     In hell, I was just a passerby 
Moving forward, strength will build     Letting go is the hardest part     Vitality comes from being smart Trust in those that are strong-willed Our honest actions will be fulfilled      I step, I sing to you, I fly, I depart
