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.

Belief vs. Reality (Madison Elizabeth Holland- Lafayette, LA)

I let the sounds wash over me
Waves on the beach
Moving me with their melodies
My hips sway to the bass
Pulsing through my core
That purple feel gives me chills
Serpentine movements flowing
Harmony, peace, and love
Things we can believe in
Strawberries sweet and drippy
To be someone is that better
Than just being alive?
Harsh realities set in
Once that trombone stops
But maybe, just maybe
That music that connected us
And the feelings it brought
Will make these beliefs come to pass
