Where I'm From

I am from sandy beaches and muddy race courses.

I am from two loving homes that were all different. My favorite being the tree house in the backyard and the barn filled with toys.

I am from flowers blooming, Saturday morning donut,  and Sunday morning breakfast.
I am from Friday night movies and sleeping on the weekends.

From Shawn and Stacey and our descendents here and gone.

From “do the dishes” and “you win and lose gracefully”.

I am from faithful love, funny giggles, and beautiful memories made everyday.

From the Grandmother who cherished her life and her kids to the Grandfather who fought for our country,

I am from all of these things.

That began, where I'm from.

I did this piece for a school assignment in english. I picked to write my poem about where I am from because it made me truly think about what I am thankful for. My purpose is that when other people have read my poem they will think about where they came from and special memories.
