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.

Gray Skies (Rachel Leann-Lafayette, LA)

Gray skies
Most run and hide
I smile,
Memories wild.

Gray skies
We did not stay inside
Behind dark clouds
The stars did hide
When we went out that night.

Black skies
The moon, nowhere in sight
When the rain poured, 
And our laughter soared,
When we went out that night.

Black skies
Your dark eyes
Hidden, but I
Still saw them in my mind.

Gray skies
Water and mud
Searching for Treasures
And having sweet fun
Falling and catching
Reaching and clinging
You, never failing
To help me out of the mud.

Sunny skies
A lonely sigh
My reluctant goodbye
Getting back to our lives
Where you thrive
And I hide
During the sunshine
Patiently waiting for more time
Beneath gray skies.
