Where I'm From

Sun, 03/15/2015 - 19:55 -- Cindy29

I AM FROM take off, turbulence, and jet lag,

From traveling every summer,

Between the countries of U.S. and China.


I am from one part of the world,

Where there are picture-perfect homes,

Green lawns, litter-free sidewalks, and a big house to live in.


Then, I am from halfway across the world,

When seeing poverty is the norm,

Small, cramp homes, traffic-filled roads, and polluted air.


But no matter where I visit,

I am from the home cooked meals,

And laughter wherever I went.


But most importantly, I am from hope, faith, and love,

Given from my family and friends,

And through it all, I’ll never forget where I AM FROM.  

This poem is about: 
My family
My community
My country
Our world
