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.

Aura (Alex KingHoward Berrio-Lafayette, LA)

Taken back by the captured beauty
that I have yet to see
See, she keeps going even after we're gone
She keeps her beauty and I am here
burning her captured beauty

I try and try to forget
but one cannot push memories
of happiness and glee
They remain as vivid as ever
yet, untamed with ferociousness

Yet, the salty water from deep within
has dried upon cheeks so saturated
with these ducts so barren
I cannot enunciate my sadness,
forced writer's block

Taken back by the captured soul
that I have yet to see
See, she keeps going, but so do I
for I weep, but my soul begins to grow
and burns a fantastic glow
