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.

Tired (Madison Elizabeth Holland- Lafayette, LA)

Her eyes were dark 
Like the petals on a dying rose
Cloudy as the smoke that trailed from her lips
The day had worn her down
She felt like the used eraser at the end of a pencil, nothing left but the harsh metal rim
Her body wanted sleep
Folding into the chair as if she were sinking into a lover's embrace
Her glass tipping, falling from her fingertips
And crashing to the floor in spearlike fragments
