Where I'm From

I am from the hot ocean breeze

and crystal clear waters 

From the baseball fields

where the dug-outs are covered in original flavored sunflower seeds

From the "lefty's got game!" 

and the "Lefty, get it!" As I step up to home plate

I am from the young girl who runs through the coffee fields 

in her sky blue dress in the embrace of freedom 

I am from the delicately blooming red Rose in a field of Tulips 

From the hidden secret garden

that is my heart 


I am from the smile that shines as bright as the sun

From the vroom-vroom of the motor to the red motorcycle riding up the dirt road 

I am from frustration of a currupted past 

fading away in a whirl of darkness 

I am from the young girl horse back riding on the beach 

the ball of fire up in the sky

setting the scenery as she makes her way down the beach 

I am from the fairy tales of a young girl all grown

yet still refusing to relinquish a dream meant to be lived
