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.

In Your Hands (Kisha Kana-Lafayette, LA)

I’m sick and I’m tired
Sick of the whole scene
No one to admire
People are just being

Existing for life
Not for love
Please cut my strings with a knife
Inside this gilded cage, I’m a dove

Wanting to fly
Longing to soar
My eyes cry
But my heart roars

Poverty holds me here
I fight it
Your presence I feel near
I need you more than I admit

As I walk through this maze
Upon your cloud
You gaze
Waiting to be proud

As I stumble
As I fall
My heart will crumble
I feel so small

My mistakes will return to haunt
Maybe forever
Behind my back, people will taunt
My faith in you will die never

When will you reveal my purpose?
Young or old?
Sometimes I feel it as a curse
But, in my heart, I know my life is gold

In all my sorrows
I know what I say is true
Even with the uncertainty of tomorrows
For my life was given by the hands of you
