Where I am From

June 5, 2008
By Samantha Goodrich, Akron, OH

I am from my grandma's house
where we played on a tire swing.
I am from camping and fishing.
I am from going to church
every Sunday and Wednesday.
I am from Camp Echo.

I am from playing outside
with dirt bikes to Barbie dolls,
from playing hide-and-seek.
I am from kick the can,
hopscotch and jump rope.
I am from the Spice Girls
and dancing to N*Sync.
I am from cookouts to
chasing the ice cream man.

I am from a rough family
with many broken hearts.
I am from broken bones
and different types of scars.
I am from good grades
and right choices, yet
I am from numerous mistakes.
