I am from me
7th grade Poetry
I am from the tall green palm trees that sway to the wind,
from the soft yet powerful crash of the crystal waves along the shore.
I am from the endlessly humid days,
from the seasons who never wake.
I am from the tangy orange state.
I am from the dirt glazed Marley,
whose smooth gray surface my pointe shoes scratch,
I am from the sweet aroma of the blistering oven
from the the fluffy sweet treats,
and the flour that scatters across my face.
I am from the german cookies my family always makes,
from the everlasting celebration of Christmas in my house.
I am from the past of my family,
who have led me to the dreams I chase.
I am from the hard working days,
from the goals I strive to reach.
I am from the belief in me and what I can do.
I am from my kind hearted mother and father who have supported me,
and the desires of kindness, passion, and leadership I pursue.
I am from the moments where I laugh.
From the moments when I’m sad.
I am from the good days and the bad.
From my past that has carried me through difficulties,
I am from who I was meant to be.
I am from me.
