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.

Music in My Head Now (Madison Elizabeth Holland- Lafayette, LA)

I can hear that music playing again 
The bass pumped so loud
It vibrates my bathroom
But no one else hears it
I get it, I do.
Falling asleep drunk
With a boombox in your head
That's what it feels like.
You get used to it
That beat rocking every night
It could be a club in your bath tub
If only you had neon lights
But then again
You don't hear it
Anymore
You don't feel it
Anymore
The beat moves without you
From now on,
Since you're an adult
And the tragic nights Pass onward.
