I am from bright running shoes and the tunes of a band.
I am from the same house for many years, but the place still never getting old.
I am from the basement where time was mostly spent playing my favorite games.
I am from a small troop of friends where every scout gets along.
From my mom and my dad and our descendants here and gone.
From “never give up” and “when you think you can’t go any further, push harder.”
I am from a friendly church where everybody gets along and has fun.
From the grandmother that lives in the woods to the grandfather that fought in the army.
I am from all of these things.
That began, where I’m from.
