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.

He Needs You (Samuel Jones- Bastrop, LA)

Stay with him, Samuel.
My intuition said.
He needs you!
(I gathered from the feelings I read.)

"He needs me?" I scoffed,
"He doesn't even care!"

He's a ship in dark waters
That's grateful you're there.

"Quoting poems, I see.
So, I'm a "lighthouse" again?"

You never stopped being one—
You've stuck to the trend.

He's halfway there, dear Samuel,
Whether you realize it or not.
Your biggest task of all
Is to stay in one spot.

He's still in dark waters
Which is why he can't see
That you are the light
And what's meant to be.

"What about all my wants;
Are those just up in the air?
I have to sit here and take this—
That just doesn't seem fair!"

I know you're upset
And wish to do more,
But by being patient and constant,
You show you'll endure

The good times and bad times
That merge and split beds, and
The failure and success
That may go to one's head.

Keep being a lighthouse!
Believe me and you'll see that
The key to winning is resilience.
That, and consistency.
