Where I'm From

May 29, 2008
By Mariane Quintao, Oak Bluffs, MA

I am from passion of the seas
I’m from farming ice in the farm
From growing spice in the field
I’m from a place of discoveries
From snakes in the river
from riding horses and feeding chicks

I’m from drawing hearts everywhere
from loving me and loving them
I’m from seeds to crops
from a childhood
of many fairy tales
I’m from their love
and from their peace

I’m from jumping ropes everyday
From singing in schools
from dancing in my room
From laughing and having fun
From learning and from art

Where I’m from?
I’m from a deepness of joy
From books to intelligence
I am from a nostalgic memory
From whereever I am from!
