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.

Judging a Person by Its Cover (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

Some books come with locks
Diaries, journals, sacred emotions
People are no different
They say never judge a book by its cover
But with people you have to
Because some people require a key
With patience their life will become a revelation
They’ve been so hurt, scared
They’ve locked themselves up
Their eyes are just walls for defense
Covers to appease the masses
All in life they seek is the touch of trust
A true key to unlock their pain
