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.

Only I Can (Jason M Smith-Lafayette, LA)
I can’t go on feeling this way.
I don’t know what else to say.
I don’t know if you want to stay.
All I can do is hope and pray.
Why do I put us through this pain?
Is it that I am insane?
Do I need to find a stable plane?
Am I just to blind to see I am a nasty stain?
If I had it to do all over,
Could I be a little bolder?
Not putting it all on your shoulders.
Then we could be together till we are older.
How do you say I am sorry for what I have done?
I am not God who sacrificed his only son.
Can I find the place from where that love comes from?
Or am I to far gone to see that I am done?
Some will never tell me the truth.
Some would rather see me in a pine booth.
Only I can find this evil root.
I know deep in my soul I will find the proof.
