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.

Nobody Knows My Soul (CJ Avory-Lafayette, LA)

Nobody knows my soul 
how could they when 
they are so quick to judge me 
never knowing my deepest reflections 
Nobody knows my heart that dreams such 
beautiful dreams and has faced 
such horrible nightmares and still I survive 
Nobody knows my pain something 
I hold deep inside in The Depths of Solitude 
Nobody knows my soul 
and sometimes I watch time pass and wonder 
if it is something that 
I will truly one day know 
because at times I don’t even know my soul
