Young Musicians Program (YMP) 2017 - Festival Week Composers Forum I

by The Walden School

Text for Paper Moon Scarlet night within water’s reach, and wood like marble My skin like glass The seconds passing in a daze, like sleep The sky can see all the secrets I tell myself That you cannot find Like how ideas aren’t real until they’re voiced The seconds are slowing down Just as I am called back to my reality —Sasha Paris-Carter
Text for Deus Ex Nihilo Silence. Void of Meaning, Void of anything, Deus Ex Nihilo. Time sprang, spaced flowed From the Source. Deus Ex Nihilo Aeons passed Terra Prima Ex Nihilo A war started, and to the Source, ended in an instant Neo Mondo Ex Nihilo. Years Passed Worlds shattered Heroes stood up, and were sundered, their bones scattered across time. The source then sent more His emissaries soon died. Until You. Imperium Ex Unum, Deus Ex Aurora Deus Ex Nihilo — Gabriel Young
Text for You You’re. My. Everything. I can’t do anything alone. Unless you are by my side. In your comfort I reside. I tried detaching myself from you. To find myself and make it better but I only found, while I was looking for myself, that I found myself in you. You are the reason that I live. The reason I function, I’ve known since the start that what we had was, different. I can no longer live in this lie. You are my alibi. The reason that my cries from inside overflow. And girl just know. That I mean what I say. Time. With you is time. Well spent and I could give you all I have. To spend all my life with you yes just us two what a fantasy. You’re a masterpiece. You are the reason that I live. The reason I function, I’ve known since the start that what we had was, different. And if you. Were. To give me a chance I Promise. That we would work out. Cause you are worth it. You are Perfect. If I loved you, would you love me like love was meant to be given? Or if you gained my trust would I lose myself again? If I gave away my selfconsciousness and invited you in, would you complete or break the rest of me? I don’t like giving chances but you are an exception. With you around everything seems to go in a new direction. I look at you are surprisingly see a reflection. I can’t be the only one feeling the connection. I’m scared, I’m nervous, my head is banging itself and my heart is heavy, but I’ve realized you’re what I need to keep myself steady. Love. —Arté Warren
