The Louisiana Social Pledge
We pledge our allegiance to Louisiana. We will embrace what makes us and our state unique. Louisiana will be recognized as a leader and innovator of the New South. Many great leaders of the future will come from this state. And we will show both the media and politicians that we are smarter than them. We will no longer have our resources exhausted and our people used and left behind. We will work hard and play hard. We will protect each other. We will support each other. We pledge that we will do whatever we can to get these things in motion right now. We will no longer wait for a path to be cleared for us. We will clear the path ourselves. And we ain’t giving up easily. We will socialize in the real world just as well as we do on the internet…in hopes to organize ourselves effectively.

Puzzle Piece (Kisha Kana-Lafayette, LA)
I feel content while basked in the sweet life of simplicity
But at times my mind pulls at atrocity
Despite the judging stares
With you I feel sane
And in your arms I’m safe
My soul is at ease
You’re my missing puzzle piece
Before I met you I was very confused
Thought I lost touch with reality
How is it possible for you to come from nowhere, and just fit me?
Being with you is like feeling the sun on my skin and the grass
