Where I am from


I am from a small close knit family,
From a place where stuffed animals are the best listeners
I am from a house where tripping over milk cans are normal
From a yard where UFF DA means S + hit

I am from blankets that keep me warm
From, a bed, where my mom and I talk
I am from a Kitchen where something is always cooking
From a plate of lasagna I home made

I am from a family who values heritage
From my grandpas lap and his stories
I am from a shoe box where pictures are kept
From a place where memories are never forgotten

I am from a neighbor hood full of trees
From a yard where trees are obstacles
I am from a back yard where my dogs run around
From a hole that they placed exactly where I would trip

I am from a spaghetti dinner shared with the neighbors
From the sweet smell of fresh cut tomatoes
I am from a porch where an old wine barrel is a table
From a bench where all my problems are solved

I am from a place where Mr. Big came
From an Uncle, though no longer there still helps me
I am from a place where Mr. Big is the best listener
From a family who cares

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
