Where I’m From

By Student 5412

Inspired by “Where I’m from” by George Ella Lyon

I am from my bed.

From blankets and pillows.

I am from the weird box.


I am from the big tree.

The grass.

I am from big noses and big bellies.

From Lankika and Chandana.

I’m from eating and getting emotional.

And from licking ice cream.

I’m from Monosodium glutamate and High fructose corn syrup.

And the ABCs

I’m from sleeping.

I’m from New York and Sri Lanka,

Kiri bath and roti.  

 From Fluffy pillows that Mom likes,
