I am from soccer ball,
From Nike and Adidas.
I am from the wet, green grass
That smelled of fresh earth.
I am from the pine,
Whose leaves I would play in everyday.
I am from jokes and playful teasing,
From do your homework and study.
I am from catholicism and church every week.
I’m from Okemos, France, and India
With curry and rice most days.
From the missing finger of my mom
To a rock
The webbed toes of my grandfather.
I am from Cohacta where all the memories are
Of when I was a child
And the where the grass was just too wild.Tags: Okemos High School
