I come from….the best of the best



I come from the sweat, the blood, and the tears
I come from the honor, the loyalty, the prestige

I come from the justice, the protection of the people

I come from the marines, the best of the best

I come from my dad, the best of the best

I come from the books, the studying all night

I come from the good grades, the A’s and B’s

I come from a graduate, a conqueror of college

I come from a teacher, a mother of kids

I come from my mom, the best of the best


I come from a Belgian, a freedom fighter

I come from a rebel, a helper of people

I come from a veteran, a man of little words

I come from a man of actions, a denier

I come from my grandpa, the best of the best




I come from a woman with unique style

I come from a woman with great mothering care

I come from my mother’s protector, the key to her care

I come from my grandma, the best of the best.

These are the people I come from they are… the best of the best.

Congratulations on having your writing accepted on-line, Coby! I enjoyed the way you went through and included the two generations of people you come from. You give us rich images of what makes them "the best of the best." Keep writing!
