Who I Am

Where I’m from,
I’m from cars
From Ford and Chevrolet,
I am from the brick patio out back,
I am from the lilac and daisies,
From the pine trees,
Whose smell will always stay fresh.

I’m from playing euchre,
Always with the whole family,
I’m from red hair,
From freckles and being short,
I’m from Kim and John,
I’m from smiling,
From laughing,
I’m from the loud and crazy,
And the quiet and calm.

I’m from Catholicism,
From church and religion,
I’m from loving,
I’m from peace.

I’m from the Irish,
From the English and Polish,
I’m from the lakes,
From camping and nature,
From sand dunes and sunsets.

I’m from albums,
Spilling with pictures,
I’m from memories and laughs,
I’m from family.
