I am from chicken noodle soup that makes your mouth water when you walk in the door.
I am from family vacations all across the nation.
From pestering my brother to lego creations.
I am from games and stories on rides in the car.
From fishing trips on the lake,
we'd go out so far, we'd get lost in the journey.
I am standing on the church pew.
(I couldn't see the screen.)
I am from theatre, gymnastics,
and Dad coaching my t-ball team.
I am from Bella's barks,
showing me love like I'd never seen.
I am from Chlo and I's silly faces,
Macie's plans of going places.
I am looking up to Emily
and turning to see Addie learning from me.
I have shaving cream fights
and slushies on summer nights.
I am from cast parties, drama classes,
and New York workshops, meeting people who change my life.
I am from friendships that last a lifetime.
I am from writing songs, piano jams,
collecting different types of sand.
From polaroids, picture frames,
to videos of random things.
I am singing in the shower
and counting down the hour when I am awake
and cannot sleep.
From neon shorts and big pink bows,
to putting on puppet shows.
I am from Cinderella's castle
and princess dresses that make me feel special.
I am Bible studies and hard thought prayers to my Creator.
I am unique because of where I am from.
