I am from the playhouse in my backyard.
From Uggs and The North Face.
I am from the welcoming, but decorated to perfection to “my mother’s liking” inner workings of lot 83.
I am from the pile of leaves played in during fall
From the bonfires till sunrise on a summer nights.

I am from the trips to Disney World and laughing till we cry
From Uncle Bub, Spunda, and Christopher Saint James.
I am from new obsessions daily and “always having the last word.”

From the “Be safe! Make Good Choices” and the “and whose problem is that?”.

I am from going to church only during the seasonal breaks from school.
I am from the Trotter Family Tree, taco dip and croissants.
From Milwaukee Brewer’s Season Ticket holders,
The Van Halen concerts and the jamming to ACDC till four a.m.
I am from Sanibel Island as the sun sets in the horizon,
As our Christmas card year after year.
