Love Glow by Jus' Cynthia

Ever Yours by Jae Duncan

Dont hide your light in a box and forget it

It will not glow if left unattended

You will not see all the beauty around you

As you live

EVER YOURS

Everyone here is here for a season

A day, or a year we wont know the reason

slow down and listen,

the answer will be revealed

EVER YOURS

Everyone here is our sister and brother

We must all learn to love one another

And bring life our best every chance we can

I am right here every time that you need me

I ll calm your fear, just believe, dont you feel me

Be still and listen and I ll talk w/you

EVER YOURS

Be sure to give thanks for each little blessing

When your light shines, you're teaching a lesson

Actions speak volumes while you're here

EVER YOURS

Dont hide your light in a box and forget it

It will not glow if left unattended

You will not see all the beauty around you

As you live

EVER YOURS

Music is the mastery of mind
It keeps you in a place of being
For moments at a time

Get caught up in its labyrinth
Leading through a thousand doors
To one simple end

AMERICA IS FOR US ALL

 Live and love the life you have

Give your best, be all that you can be

Show your strength

Do the right

We all must build our country

 In the city,

And in the countryside,

Our brother and sisters grow

We love you

We love you now

America is for us all

 

One by one we change our world

Working in unity

We re living together

With hope in our hearts

We re cherishing our destiny

In the city,

And in the countryside,

Our brother and sisters grow

We love you

We love you now

America is for us all
