Where I'm From
I am from soccer cleats, from Nike and Adidas.
I am from a cream two story with red brick, on a quiet cul-de-sac.
From the smell of freshly cut grass, the pink hibiscus plants and the lonely weeping willow.
I am from Thanksgiving pie flipping, red hair and freckles like Grandpa Pat.
I am from slumber parties in front of the fire and watching movies with popcorn.
From “always be honest,” “be kind to everyone” and “do your best.”
I am from Cooper and Stella, man’s best friend and mine.
I am from the coin collection, passed down for generations.
From Xbox, Call of Duty and Halo.
I am from competitive soccer games and oranges at halftime.
I am from anxious bus rides to away games and winning chants.
From soccer medals and trophies to remember.
