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.

long·ing /ˈlôNGiNG/ n: A yearning desire. (Alex KingHoward Berrio-Lafayette, LA)

The thought of such piercing ache
would have never settle upon still pond waters.
When the glistening, yet gentle jade stones
escape from my vision,
time becomes phlegmatic
and all one can do is weep.
Trickle sorrowful tears that inundate
the very soul halved
rip violently through the surface,
begetting ripples of longing.
Absence takes hold
and with fervent coercion,
educes a surrendering sigh
