Where I’m From

I’m from cold winters

and warm nights.

 

I’m from the simple wooden house

and a bright red door.

 

I’m from where my parents grew up

and where our family of four began.

 

I’m from where everyone knows your name

and small town mentality.

 

I’m from music flowing through our home

and warm candles lit for evening.

 

I’m from boating on the lake

and camping in the mountains.

 

I’m from ice cream shops

and picnics at friends.

 

I’m from lemonade stands

and only 3 cars passing by.

 

I’m from bonfires on the beach

and parties with old friends.

 

I’m from having friends 5 minutes away

and having friends 5 states away.

 

I’m from having money

and not having money.

 

I’m from being healthy

and being very sick.

 

I’m from a long wait

and an unimaginable gift.

 

I’m from the best of times

and the worst of times.

 

I’m from where life is good.

 

Where are you from?

-Anna
