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.

Please Let Me Show You Love (Madison Elizabeth- Lafayette, LA)

A bleeding heart beats inside my chest
I want to fix you, hold you gently
If only I had the ability to help you the way you need
I could save you from yourself
Stay with you, take care of you
You may not even realize who I am
But I love you and care about you
Once in my not-so-distant past
I learned what it was to be completely alone
And to feel like no one understood
Or could help me
Maybe now you see why I want to help
I know the way you feel
Maybe not the exact emotion
But I understand the depth of your pain
I have scars like you do
Maybe not as deep
But they are still etched into my wounded heart
So please
Let me be there for you
If only to hold you while you cry
Tell you that it's gonna be okay
Because even though you can't see the light now
Doesn't mean it isn't coming
And if it's alright with you
I'll stay and keep you company until then
Wait with you until you realize
That no matter how alone you feel
I will always love you.
