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.

My Potential (Louis Toliver Jr - Swartz, LA)

A friend once revealed myself to me 
I didn't much know how to see 
He said I'd be a pharaoh among kings 
I'd be a protector of what life brings 
My intellect would instigate the seas
My spirit would bring honey to the bees

The world was too small for me to stand 
My friend calmed me and took my hand 

I didn't think of myself as I should 
At times I felt my soul was hollow wood 
If the confidence of angels is God's game 
At what point would I recognize my name? 
My potential has to be earned by the stars 
But, I am no good to earth living on Mars 

I thank my friend for preparing me for today 
I've been enlightened to finding my way
