I Am From

I am from fall leaves long ago-
A four year old in the forest with the wolf.
I am from the beauty of jazz and the fun of country music,
In the city when the smell of food fills the air,
And in the country when the beauty of the bayou engulfs you in its magic.
I am from Florida
Where the sun is shining
And the smell of the sea is all around you.
I am from moving.
Where Katrina caused sadness and pain.
I am from home.
Where I fight with my sisters all the time but love them.
Where my mom yells at them to get out my room.
Where we sing with our Husky every day.
I am from love.
Where family is the most important thing.
Where sitting around the TV watching movies on rainy days are fun.
Where only the little things matter.
Where I will forever be happy.
I am from memories.
Good and bad.
Secret but waiting to be told.
Where I can remember things long ago that happened in my life.
Where the moments will stay forever.
