I am from flat lands covered in tumbleweeds
From dirt roads and cotton wood trees
I am from the fields whose crops feed a thousand
From cows, coyotes, foxes, and horses
I am from flip phones and lemonade stands
From Ramen noodles and Rug Rats
I am from Sunday morning church and football afternoons
I am from Dragon Tails and Blues Clues cartoons in the morning
I am from a generation of change
From smart phones and tablets
From laptops and wireless internet, smart TV’s,
and video game consoles
I am from a country with the first black president.
From a world whose values have changed.
From a world who believes in war and not peace.
I am from a nation, who keeps God out of schools,
From a nation, who wonders where God is
only when things go bad
I am from Mike and Jonna
From two families of different kinds
From a family of four girls
I am from a family with tons of cousins.
My life is full of people and memories
Memories that make me who I am
and people who make where I am from so great
