im in love with you and im sorry (Cullen Mury - Lafayette, LA)

im in love with you
and i know that love is just a word in the void of existence 
and that our oblivion is inevitable
and that were all doomed to fall into the angel of death’s arms
and that one day all our labor will return to its true form
dust

im in love with you
and i know that they will watch me drift into the sun
and i know you think im selfish
that im a liability to your existence 
but know that i am not in love with the feeling of love 
but rather your presence in this world
and in my arms

im in love with you 
and i’m sorry
sorry that my heart rushes to find yours
and that it rapidly longs for your heart

but i know that your heart is not mended yet
and i will wait 
like a bride at the altar 
like a dog at the door
like a mother for her son
for your heart to be mended 
and i will become a stitch

a stitch that shows you you are worthy 
that your scars are what make you you
that you are beautiful
that you are wanted 
that you deserve so much more than what this cruel  world has given you
that you are loved by me

and i will sit 
and listen
and try to understand 
if it means that there is still a chance
a slim chance
that this love that i have for you
can grow into love you have for me
im in love with you and im sorry

Legacy of the Future (Ted Richard-Church Point, LA)

One day, a very large owl appeared in my dream. Its rainbow colored feathers showed Only the wealth of wisdom that had been Amassed throughout its lifetime.
And then it spoke to me “Legacy of the Future” And then flew away.
It’s strange to me how a dream can be So distant yet so relative, So blurry, yet so vivid; So imaginative, yet so real.

I spent many of the next years Wandering and wondering. Wandering through my childhood, Wondering where life would take me. Wandering through my adolescence, Wondering which path to choose. And wandering in my young adulthood Wondering if the choices I made would ever mean something.
And then I remembered the dream. “Legacy of the Future” And I knew exactly what the owl meant.
From that day forward, Each day I dwell on each moment As a way to become the person I envision myself to be: Honest, Strong and Proud. I am honest about my successes and honest about my failures. My failures become opportunities, and leads to more focused direction. I am s…

When I Look into the Rainbow I See (Bisquita Stevens-Broussard, LA)

When I look into the rainbow I see
Blues like the sky and greens like grass to grow.

When I look into the rainbow I see
Yellows like the sun that gives me the Vitamins that my skin needs. When I look in the rainbow I see
Purples and oranges that make flowers look so Vibrant into my eyes. When I look into the rainbow I see
Red that stands for hate the same hate that is why a lot of us can't marry the person that we love with all our of heart. Isn't red supposed to mean love? Red hate, just because I love someone in my own sex.
I also see hate in my own Gay community. Who cares If I can't wear the Latest fashion because of money that I don't have? It should be what is in my heart. Stop the hate and stand together as one.

Superman (Jennifer Chehardy-Lafayette, LA)

I thought you were Superman. Taking off Brave. No gear. No fear. Kryptonite? Pffft!  Muah! So you thought. But discovered When you landed, there lie your krypto. The green glowing rock of  The familiar, routine, ordinary. What next? Another flight. But how? After you've worn the cape. Es-cape. Leave the cape. Only to discover you are Clark Kent. And he is Superman. Maybe not in flight but in person. Be that person With or without the cape. The story still ends the same. Get the girl. Know your weakness. Always a hero Just sometimes in a different place. When you were flying I said Who is that? A bird? A plane? When you landed I saw you really were Superman.
