ANGST OF EARLIER DAYS

Angst of Earlier Days

Like a stubborn stain on a silken carpet
Despite attempts by the toughest cleaners
The Angst of Earlier Days keeps bleeding,
Bleeding through, making a mockery of me,
And it also makes a mockery of you, too.
Oh, to be forever rid of the Angst of Earlier Days,
But it just keeps bleeding through, & bleeding through …

I am a Southern Belle, through and through. Born and raised in North Alabama, where my family settled in 1808, when the area was still the Mississippi Territory, I come from a line of Planters, Patriots, and Pioneers. They were people who were unafraid to take risks, who said what they believed, and who honored God and their Country. Like my ancestors before me, I have strong values, believing that the Golden Rule is indeed golden. I write as a way to relate and as a release. I hope that my words may inspire, challenge and provoke one to thinking about how extraordinary things can come out of ordinary places, people, and things.
