Where I'm From

Where I'm From by Ryan G.


The ground is where I'm from, born out if the dust and dirt.

I am from my family, and their laughter and love.

Of days spent hiking and camping, experiencing the world but always wanting to see more. 

And the storms and weather, are where I'm from. Tornadoes, ice, and snow. 


I am from the pages that I read, but also the ones I write.

The days I have spent watching endless amounts of TV shows and movies.

To marathons of Harry Potter because Hogwarts will always be my home.

And times spent singing my heart out to the music I love. 


I'm from days of sadness and happiness spent with friends from all over.

And the fashion shows we always made time for.

To kindergarten antics of Cops and Robbers that seemed to last forever.

And the 3 musketeers who were inseparable, but with time that bond faded.


I am from the good times but also the bad ones.

But time can only tell, how I will grow from Where I'm From.
