I am from the shadows, from Nike running shoes.

I am from the nut house full of rude humor and yelling teenagers.

I am from the peacefulness of the woods running forever.

I am from camping in the deep woods and laughing till we cry.

From Donna and Michael

I am from the wild crazy house and loud heated arguments that occur each day.

From “Trying your best and have fun doing it” and watching your father leave you and never come back.

I am from a Catholic family

I am from my Great Memere and fellow ancestors who settled in France, from Crapes and French Onion soup.

I am from a father who is a smoker and an alcoholic and I wait each day for his calls that don't always come.

I am from the Shadows.
