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.

Nirvana Awaits (James Leland Ludeau III-Lafayette,LA)

sitting in reverence
your green marble figure
reminding me of my divinity
that i should try to be more like you
conscious
patient
forgiving
that Nirvana awaits
that my ego is but a fragment of who i am
i am at peace
bowed
in offering to you
a small symbol of what i get back
i pray
silent
silence
peace
i am humbled by your nature
i am intrigued by your peace
i seek to know more
to do more
to be better
beneath this temple i feel reborn
awake
my eyes are open
not only to what i should change
but to what i have forgotten to celebrate
