Where I'm From

I am from the days of practicing for more hours than I sleep,
from the quiet nights, disturbed by the “dink” of my putter hitting the ball,
as I am working towards one goal: to win...
I am from the chase to be one of the best to ever whack a little white ball around,
from the motivation of success,
and the determination--
to make my mom and dad proud...

I am from the navy blue house on the hill,
sporting a snowflake white trim,
neighboring the pink and green “Barbie House.”
I am from the gym,
from the throbbing glutes, the aching triceps,
and the burning sensation of strength,
mentally and physically.

I am from the family of four,
from the family of givers, the family of hard workers,
and the family of I love yous...“to the moon and back.”
I am still from the chase to be undisputedly the best,
from the motivation of success,
and the determination--
to make my mom and dad proud...
