I am from the spacious backyard

from jersey’s and ball caps.

I am from the perfectly mowed lawn

and the trampoline out back.

I am from corn fields

whose rows seemed to never end.

I am from baseball and sweat lines

from Tom and Jen.

I am from a small town and a ball game

and from drinking beer

from I told you so.

I am from the cross necklace my Grandma gave me.

I am from Farmers and Army Veterans

from sauerkraut and dumplings

from cancer treatments

and from full recoveries.

The many trophies I won.

I am from those moments that made me never want to grow up.
