    Where I’m From Poem

    I am from front porches, from Cola and Pepsi.
    I am from the big back yard at my moms house.
    I am from the rose bush, and the honey suckles.
    I am from Christmas songs, and hard workers, from Kris and Billy Joe and the Lewis’.
    I am from the craziness and the caring.
    From santas coming and tooth fairy money.
    I am from my uncles church, listening to him preach before eating dinner.
    I am from Harlan, from soup beans and cornbread.
    From my dad telling me stories from when he was a teen, and telling me how I’m following right in his foot steps.
    I am from the pictures on the wall, a timeline of all of our lives.
