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.

Stars (by James Leland Ludeau III-Lafayette,LA)

the stars above feel like home
as they sparkle in this crisp Colorado night
tiny pins of light
in a blanket of cobalt and black sky
promises that darkness never wins
like diamonds
reflecting the light they contain
and i look up in awe
and i blow my wishes into the wind
hanging on stars
counting them
watching their twinkle
my soul is full of stars
my arms
my neck
stars etched into my skin
promises reminded
that the darkness that once threatened me
didn't win
