Where I am From

I am from sunny days on the lake, wind in my hair, and water skiing until the beautiful sun sets
I am from camp fires on a starry night, overnight camps, RV trips, and exotic community service trips
I am from jumping into a huge pile of colorful leaves, family hikes, bike rides, apple picking on a crisp fall day, and dogs running everywhere
I am from snowflakes on my frosty nose as I ski down the white topped mountains in Colorado, hot tubs in zero degrees, and hot chocolate on a snow day.
I am from leaving the snow for the sunny beach, family trips to islands, and crazy family New Years parties as we listen to crackling, colorful fireworks
I am from rain boots, running in the rain and playing in the mud
I am from family Chinese dinners, cousins as best friends an, 8 nights of Hanukah, and countless hours of laughing at the holiday dinner table
I am from Solon Comet football games, friends who catch me when I fall; loving parents and sibling rivalries that come to an end in a heart beat
I am from long days at the barn, sore legs, jumping over fences, cleaning out stalls instead of my rooms and praying for recovery
I am from the smell of my grandma’s famous spaghetti, playing dress up, and sleepovers where no one sleeps
I am from countless family jokes, laughter and family pictures every other second.

These kinds of poems can get boring after a while, but you managed to avoid that, and make your poem very unique and interesting. Nice job.
