I am from the soil underneath the ground
And the light from the sky
I am from the people you see walking down the streets
From the friendship you see bound within humans
I am from the pain of this world
And from the growth in the roots of a tree
I am from the fire within the spirit
And the love found within this Earth
I am from the frowns and the tears
From the laughs and the giggles
I am from everything you see and everything you do not see.
I am from the lovely moments laced between my siblings
And the overpowering love I have experienced in my life.
In style of ‘Where I’m From,’ by George Ella Lyons
