Where I'm From Poem

December 18, 2017

I am from horse shows and guitar strings plucking to a tune.

I am from an old white farm house that has been in my family for generations.

I am from the colorful picture God made in the morning, warm summer nights catching fireflies, and family dinners.

I am from harmonized laughter and the kids causing trouble.

I am from Willie Nelson,  Merle Haggard, and Hank Williams, and everyone singing along. (Even if we aren't very good.)

I am from a catholic church my father grew up to, C.C.D. every month.

From the the grandmother who worked on the factory to support her six kids, and a grandfather who guarded the coast.

I am all of these things.

That began, where I’m from.
