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’s Perfect …And That’s Perfectly Fine (Louis Toliver Jr-Swartz, LA)

What if I told you the secret to life was acceptance, that’s it
To accept nature, life, and humanity for it is, so don’t quit

I am not perfect, you are not perfect, we are not perfect
It’s ridiculous to think that we spend so much time searching
I have no clue what we are searching for, maybe to be “whole”
But I know no more than you when it comes to life and such

My words are not perfect, don’t you see, I don’t always rhyme
Still, to express oneself helps connect to others in their time
Don’t strive to be her or him or them or all that isn’t like you
Live to be your fantasies and desires that don’t make you blue

Nature, as often as it creates, also destroys what is not perfect
But let us be better than our nature, embracing imperfection
