She had built them strong and she had build them tall,

The impenetrable walls of the fortress that surrounded her.

Many a man had tried and failed to penetrate or scale that wall,

But little did they know  that too much effort would never conquer. 

All it would take is the heart and mind of one single solitary man,

For though the walls were thick and tough as steel, they contained a door

And all she really wanted was a man that would finally open up and understand

That if ever he was lucky enough to venture inside, she would be his forever more. 

He didn’t have to break down her walls – all he had to do was find the key

That would seduce her mind and enable him to finally set her free.

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.
