Idaho

I'm what is called a true Idaho girl.
I stop at nothing.
I flinch at nothing.
I never let anything crush me for long.
I. Never. Back. Down.
I'm so stubborn it can't be good for me.
I'm so softhearted it can't be good for me, either.
I always find a way to manage things.
My roots are here in this wild golden plain,
the daughter of farmers and teachers.
This is my home, this is the only place I have ever loved
in the way land is supposed to be loved.
(According to my Irish ancestors.)
So many people probably think I'm just like any other girl.
And if I were from anywhere else, I would be.
But I'm from Idaho.
And that makes all the difference.

Hmm? Somebody call? :)

Can't call myself an Idaho boy, but my Nomadic domain of home includes Idaho (and rejects NC).

As of right now you've been initiated. You are now an Idaho boy. One's native land is the place one loves the best. Admit it, you love it here.
