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.

Forgive Me (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

I never wake up with the feeling
Of intentionally harming anyone’s life
I want you to know that I am healing
From all the things that have caused me strife

I hope that you can forgive me
If you think I have done you wrong
My actions have been from the pain I see
All of my insecurities that I felt for so long

Know that all I live for I meant to be done for good
And if one day you see me I want to give you a hug
I apologize for any hurt to you as any man should
I was hurt as well and I promise that I am no thug

When all the wounds heal I pray for your hand
That we support each other as friends until the end
Even if we know each other or not, together let us stand
To show the ones we love, that all problems, we can amend
