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.

Certain (Louis Toliver Jr-Austin, TX)

I'm certain 
Something is behind life's curtain 
We spend our whole lives 
Waiting for that surprise 
Of which we're uncertain 

We're counting breaths in fives 
Hoping our faith revives 
That assurance can never come
So we look for any crumb 
Until our death arrives 

It's usually in autumn 
We feel a little numb 
But with a little knowledge 
We can avoid death's ledge 
I am certain of this wisdom 

Living on the edge
That's certainty's wedge 
Spirituality's birth 
That's happens on this earth
If we take that pledge 

No limit is in certainty's girth
Your purpose you must unearth
I am certain 
We should be certain
We all have our worth
