Hi, here’s a poem that I wrote for a class project using
I realize that this may be hard to read so here it is in a different font if you're interested in reading it.
This is Where I’m From
I am from comedians,
from musicians and nerds though I would never tell them that personally.
I am from energetic ancestors,
that are imaginative, creative, and come up with the weirdest things.
I am from music and from art,
from the art on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel.
I am from academics,
from always being ahead no matter how many steps I’ve taken in the opposite direction.
I am from Christianity,
from sticking to what I know is right and avoiding what I know is wrong.
I am from wanting to be my own person and not being afraid to show who I am,
from never following the crowd.
I am from standing up for my beliefs,
from understanding others when nobody else will take the time to listen.
I am from believing that there’s always an answer and always a possibility,
from hope for the future and all that live after me.
