Where I’m From
By Student 24187
Inspired by “Where I’m From” by George Ella Lyon
I am from my dog and cat.
From Clorox and couch
I’m from my bedroom up stairs
It Smells good
I am from the sunflower in my mom's rome
The maple trees behind my fence.
I’m from my aunt’s house at Christmas and rolling veins.
From my Uncle Ryan and Great Great Grandpa Ryan.
I’m from leaving the light on in the bathroom and snacking a lot.
And driving a lot.
I’m from don’t do that and don’t eat that.
And Rock-a-Bye Baby.
I’m from hanging with a friend on Halloween.
I’m from Lebanon, New Hampshire and Australia,
Mom’s Mississippi Mud Pie and Grandpa’s steak.
From Grampa injured twice in the army,
while in Iraq,
the rocking chair that many of my family members were rocked in.
