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.

No Easy Way From The Earth To The Stars (James Leland Ludeau- Lafayette, LA)

Gravity hurts
Falling from your arms 
Where I longed to be 
I read it all wrong 
Wasn't what it seemed 
Out of the lion's den 
Born again 
Treading my own path
I was all aboard 
Until you said you would be King 
'Cuz that's not how my story will be written 
Not smitten 
I won't fall asleep for 100 years and wake up to be rescued 
I'm the prince & the princess & the King of my own tale 
I won't fail 
Back on my feet
 Reassembling the pieces 
Don't have to pretend any longer 
I'll write my own destiny 
Share my thoughts 
Bare my soul 
Be made whole 
Blindsided by you I saw stars 
Now I'll fly to them 
No easy way from the earth to the stars
I've never loved easy 
Never loved easily 
But I'm wide awake 
And my heart is open 
No longer bound by a liar's ideal
