I am from flowers, from MiracleGro and gardens.
I am from the yellow and bricked house with the blazing orange fireplace.
I am from the Colorado Blue Spruce, the Norway Evergreen whose height I aspire to attain.
I am from heart-reading and blunt, from Sarah and Grace.
I am from the hardworking and amiable.
From the innocent child and the mischievous one.
I am from the truth, believing in only facts and respecting ancestors.
I’m from the Kremlin and Edo, from Solyanka to pot stews,
From my Grandmother’s childhood through her grey eyes, to the disease that mother almost lost her life
From the stormy bourgeois past to the humble present,
I am from that past in the present, a new budding branch to the current tree.Tags: Okemos High School
