Where I am From


I am from Scrabble and Resident Evil

I am from football in the park

I am from singing in church

I am from flashlight tag after dark

I am from reading and writing

I am from Gretchen Wilson and Lynard Skynard

I am from poprocks and Pepsi

I am from Sunday baseball winners

I am from Tom Petty and Alan Jackson

I am from Kay Scarpetta and Artemis Fowl

I am from big guns and knives

I am from the beach with big towels

I am from outside with nature

I am from inside with family

I am from alone in the woods

I am from just myself to take care of me

I am from big hopes and dreans

I am from people with a helping hand

I am from making a differince

I am from knowing I can

To fight for their country and Kaiser;
