I used to ski in my white winter jacket and puffy pink snow pants at three years old.
I’m from savoring sweet hot chocolate.
I’m from roasting marshmallows over the fire in the lodge.
I used to go on sweaty bike rides for the joy of cool custard.
I’m from tired legs and bruised buttcheeks.

I now compete in a pitcher’s circle around the Midwest.
I’m from double braids, visors, and sun beaten faces.

I now enjoy summer while it lasts with my friends.
I’m from seven o’clock mornings packing a cooler for a day on the lake.
I’m from lake showers and washed away hours.

I’m from seventeen years in my house.
I’m from seventeen years surrounded by my friends and family.
