Where I'm From

October 9, 2009
I am from the hot summer days,
from mosquitoe bites and restless nights.
I am from uniforms, clean nails
and hair tied back.
I am from the colors, the noise,
the "grrr... of the rickshaw.

I am also from the changing seasons, from the falling leaves of autumn.
I am from the pep rallies to AP Exams.
I am from the world of literature,
from the great adventures, friendships, and the horror.

I am from 'typical' yet so different.
I am from jokes and impressions,
from lectures and expectations.
I am from one-dish parties and beach trips, from magic shows and sand castles.
I am from "When I was your age..."

I am from strength of prayers, from beliefs, values and traditions.
Neither,nor I am from a country,
I am from a place within.
