I Am From
I am from a family of eight,
Although we have times we hate,
We shall always have loving moments together.
I am from a family who has crossed the Mekong River.
Crossing from Laos to Thailand, with fifty people but only with thirty people left
I am from all the goodbyes
Dropping so many tears
Even my loving pets Zeus, Baby, and Pink
Rest in Peace,
You’ll always be in my heart.
I am from Wisconsin,
Never getting to go far but the furthest I have been was to Chicago, Illinois.
But as I stand here most of my breathing life,
Oshkosh is where I stand the most.
I am from the long picnic.
Lying on soft green grass, watching the big white clouds in the light blue sky.
Closing my eyes feeling the wind blowing the grass.
As this is who I am
I am from my main food rice,
And noodle soup
Is what I love eating the best.
I am from no more school days
Just laying next to the ocean shore, on the beach
Feeling the nice breeze blowing my hair
But as I wish, one day it shall come true
I am from the shortest of most,
As I am 4’11”and everyone else 5’0 and up, just so close to them
Having to look up to all
But I can be the bravest of all
I am from flag football.
As I push them to get the quarterback,
Or sometimes having to run to get the running back,
Many times having to run to get the flag sometimes even diving,
There are times I miss and times I get the flag,
Although we don’t win a game, but we still work hard and it’s just a game,
It’s all about having fun with laughter and smiles.
I am still proud to call myself a Decepticon.
I am from your smiles,
I am from who I am
