Where I Come From

I am from eight seats around the table

from barbies and baby dolls

I am from pine trees and chickens and fireflies on a warm summer day

I am from roses

whose petals fly in the wind

I am from barbecue sauce and pumpkin pie

from Delaney and Parent

I am from blonde hair and blue eyes

and from church on a Sunday morning

from crazy holiday traditions

I am from God help us

I am from Grandma Lee

from barbecue and triple chocolate cake

from death

and from divorce

often a new home

I am from those moments which have made me who I am today

I am from roses
