I’m from family reunions every Christmas,
From playing with my cousins every afternoon.
Water guns and pillow fights,
A large family is where I’m from.
I’m from arguments with my sister Lisa,
From the “always believe in yourself” and the
“Don’t let anyone bring you down”
I’m from a cheating father and long-lost siblings,
From a mother, pretending to be fine.
I’m from my grandma’s cooking,
And from story night with grandpa. I’m from
A million coffee mugs and
From the fantastic smell of breakfast
I’m from an old collection of dolls,
From the closet monster and from The Little Mermaid.
I’m from Spanish music every Sunday morning,
I’m from not worrying about a single thing in the world as long as I had a book in my hand.
