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.

Love Me (Louis Toliver Jr- Swartz, LA)

I am so imperfect
I don’t speak the best English
I don’t even know when to use a comma,
But hey, that’s the game of artificiality
Will judgment ever go out of style?
It’s always:
“You’re not doing this enough”
“You’re doing too much of this now”
Why does “this” matter so much to you
When “this” is me, not you
Am I ever going to be enough?
You have put so many problems in my head
Will you ever give me a hug for just trying to “be”?
