I am from a home of love
from books and funny faces
I am from warmth and comfort
and understanding
I am from lilies
whose petals bloom in the spring
I am from playgrounds and amusement parks
from Sheena and Yusef
I am from laughter and jokes
and from support
from honesty
I am from making my parents and family laugh
I am from Janet and Helen
from 7up cake and
from achieving your dreams
and from being successful
Baking and dancing
I am from those moments
I am from a home of love

I loved how specific and unique this poem was. I can hear the familiarity in your voice, and it is rather comforting. A couple of months ago, I did a “Where I’m From” poem, and I loved writing it. While it was very simple it allowed me to reflect on myself and those around me. Keep up the good work, and I look forward to seeing more pieces from you!

Autumn, I really enjoyed reading this. It was a cool and creative look into your personal family life and I love the way you formatted it. Being in a home of love is something so beautiful and warm and your poem really conveyed how it feels. Thank you for this piece, looking forwards to hearing more from you.

Autumn, I really enjoyed reading your poem as it really conveyed you as a person through all of your personal interests and aspirations. I especially liked the line where you said “I am from warmth and comfort
and understanding”, as it conveyed perhaps your emotions to other around you. This style of formatting your poem was really beautiful and I look forward to seeing what you put out in the future. Thank you for sharing.
