I am from island Lyons and two brothers running to you.

I am from 5 homes that were all different, but filled with love. My favorite being the brick porch with the small swing that squirrels would wonder.

I am from tiger lillies, pine trees, and maple leaves swaying,

I am from loud voices, and the strumming of guitar strings.

From JR and Cassandra and our descendents here and gone,

From “ be anything you want to be” and “ do what makes your soul shine”,

From the grandmother that dances to the blues, to the grandfather that plays with the blues,

I am from all of these things,

That began, where I’m from

Its Home To me...
