Where I'm From

I am from late nights and the drawings that always filled my walls.
                                                                                                  I am from three homes that all had their own stories, but filled with love. My favorite being the one that made me and my mother stronger.

I am from maple trees and bodies for water.

I am from the sounds and smells for breakfast in the morning and late night car drives.

From Mike and Jessica and our descendents here and gone.

From “do whatever you want as long as you're successful at it” and “i'll give you ice cream if you hit a homerun.”

I am from all of these things.

That began, where I’m from.

I wrote this poem as a classroom assignment. I wanted to write this poem on this topic because it really explains how I have lived and what my life is like.


I hope that people will read this poem and think about how their lives are and how your past can effect you.
