Where I’m From

I am from lacrosse,

from my phone and clothes

I am from the woods in my backyard

I am from sunflowers,

the lilac bush

I am from family beach trips and family get togethers,

from my mother and father and my little sister

I am from always making my family laugh at the dinner table

and always joking around with my family

From not sleeping until I was 2 years old

and told not to let the bedbugs bite

I am from god

I am from Millersville, PA,

Tacos and spaghetti

From the time when I lost my first tooth,

to when I first went on a airplane,

and from the time I taught my sister how to walk

I am from from those moments,

that are embedded in my brain
