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.

All Alone (Jason Smith-Lafayette, LA)

Here I sit in this house all alone,
Waiting for someone to call on the phone.
I wonder why this has to be,
Is there anyone out there for me?
Is this what fate has to offer,
Or will I be empty like this coffer?
Not having someone to call my own,
Makes this house feel empty and not a home.
Is this what makes me fill with hate,
Not able to love or find a mate?
To be so alone without any friends,
Could this lead me to my final end?
I have never felt so much hurt inside,
Should I say to the world my goodbyes?
I know I should be happy this time of year,
I just can’t get into the Christmas cheer.
I have this feeling of loneliness and shame,
I guess I have only myself to blame.
