Neely-Dorsey: Poetry for All Things Mississippi

neely-dorsey slider 2

If Mississippi’s in you
It’ll always be that way;
It matters not how far you
Or how long you stay.
If Mississippi’s in you,
It always plays a part;
In how you live and move and breathe,
And in every notion of the heart.
If Mississippi’s in you,
It’s in you through and through;
It’s in in who you are and how you be,
And it’s in everything you do.
If Mississippi’s in you,
There is some special glow;
A different something down inside,
That all the home folks know.
If Mississippi’s in you,
It’ll always be that way,
From the time you enter in the world,
Till in the grave you lay.
Every true Mississippian,
Can surely have it said;
I’m Mississippi born,
I’m Mississippi bred,
And when I die,
I’ll be Mississippi dead.
