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.

Stream of Consciousness (Samuel Jones- Bastrop, LA)

I am floating.

Relaxed, spinning
And star shaped,
Flowing with the current
Of my mind.

I am floating.

The guppies nibble
At my toes,
But something deep inside me knows
They're are distractions.

I am floating.

I hear the growl 
Of a bear.
Paws slashing through the air,
I am the salmon.

Rosy with love,
Glimmering with hope,
The jade beast
Wants to cannibalize me.

I am floating.

I do not dive deep beneath
To escape surface perils.
I am not consumed,
As fear was the missing spice.

I am floating.

And I am paused
By the rocks
Representing mental blocks.
So I let go,

Remembering that the pebbles beneath me
Were once rocks as well.
Oval and smooth
They have been softened by the stream that carries me now.
