    I am from good luck and love
    From dish detergent and water
    I am from butterflies that taste so sweet
    and Christmas trees
    Can you believe they are so itchy?
    I am from chocolate and Hershey kisses
    I am from lions and scratching
    From neck bones and chicken wings
    I am from crab legs in the sea
    I am from shrimp prepared for me
    From candy yams and collard greens
    I am from mash potatoes
    that’s what I eat
    I am from Jolly Ranchers and Now and Later that are sweet like me
    From Starburst and Skittles
    From chocolate bunnies, Cry Babies and Sour Worms
    I am from gummy bears and lollipops
    I am Leio’s- that’s me
    I am from Odyssey, especially!

    Where I’m from

    I’m from the stars in the sky and the firefly’s nearby.
    From the crisp summer air that goes anywhere
    I’m from the tulips that grow in the spring from the rich soil beneath the oak trees.
    I’m from bare feet that has so much mud in between.
    I’m from the chirping of the Blue Jays that never sounds the same
    I’m from the ten verses of the 1600 page bible I have on my dresser.
    I am from the fresh grass trimmings on a Sunday morning
    I’m from the Lewis’s the Lovelace’s and the Freemans that bloom as big as the ones on a magnolia tree.
    I’m from the good times and broken mirrors.
    From open windows that let in new beginnings
    From the attic that’s never been swept but holds so many memorable objects that’s so dear to me and I hope it stretches and grows like a never ending line because that’s life to me.

    Where I’m From
    I’m from hot sand and sunny skies, from a salty sea as blue as a Jay’s wings.
    I’m from sun burns,
    When my face burned brightly, and my back was on fire.
    I’m from short summers and short school years, from a place where winter doesn’t exist, and summer gets up to 97 degrees or higher.
    I’m from camping sites and dogs hanging out car windows, carefree.
    I’m from friends who would die for me, loyal and trustworthy, from a family I can’t describe, loving and caring. Yet strict at the same time.
    I’m from cookouts filled with the smell of fried chicken and burgers.
    I am from Miami, Florida in the year 1999!
    This is where I am from.

    Where I’m From
    Zoriah,Age 13
    I am from smiles and good mornings
    To sweet hugs at night
    From the woods of camping
    To roasting golden-brown marshmallows.
    From barks and meows
    To slobbery pants and purrs.

    I am from clicks on the Dell computer
    To silent rings on the phone
    From hanging with friends
    And being told to come home.

    I am from wet splashes with the family
    To lying on a summer night under the stars
    From school dances and parties with friends
    To telling deep dark secrets while catching a late movie.

    I am from rough pain
    And sharp happiness
    But most of all I am from
    People who care?
    And people who I know will always be there
    That’s where I’m from

    Where grill smoke is always in the air

    I’m from food stamps every 19th
    Where we always have food in the refrigerator

    From shooting to killing

    I’m from strawberry Fanta and coca cola
    From Laffy taffies and skittles
    Where family dollar is down the street
    That’s where I’m from….
    I’m from new clothes and nice shoes
    From playing with flashlights to hiding in the dark
    Where sweet smelling cake comes from the kitchen
    That’s where I’m from….
    I’m from being direct is being real
    From birthday cakes come almost everyday
    Where being smart is not cool and being dumb is
    I’m from my mother on June 1st in the hot summer night at 10:33
    That’s where I’m from…….

    Where I’m from:
    I’m from cries of pain and of joy.
    From “Toys R Us teddy bears” from the outer skirts of Georgia.
    I am from the sweet smell of honeysuckles, and daises.
    The very large oak tree in my backyard.
    And from opening 1 present on Christmas eve.
    From Sa’Quira and Derwin.
    From the sound of the sound of the ice cream truck.
    And ice cream dripping down my chin.
    From you can’t do anything if you don’t try, and always be somebody in life.
    I’m from popcorn on Saturdays nights.
    And playing in the woods till the crack of dawn.
    From under the bathroom sink, hiding my secrets from the world.

    I AM FROM A HOME FILLED WITH LOVE!

    I am a girl who likes to play and have fun with my friends
    I am a girl who’s growing up and realizing that everybody is
    Not who they say they are

    Yes I look behind my steps

    I am from loud cursing, and yelling, from a big family that fuss and fight and home-made pea can pie

    From a house with double porches, and a big refrigerator full of food that any and everyone is welcome to

    Big red roses, and big yellow daises

    I am from clumsy kids that always fumble, and from two parents that were once in love, but they can’t stand each other

    From being told to always follow your dreams, and don’t let anyone stop you, that’s where I’m from

    I am from a house that praise god, and a mother that loves diamonds

    From short skirts, long wavy hair, and young girls finding themselves pregnant at a young age, and becoming a single parent

    Where I’m from your can make your dream come true

    Where I’m from

    I’m from this horrible place
    I don’t want to call home
    I’m from a person who
    I call mother who
    Cared for me
    That’s where I’m from
    I’m from deadly streets
    A place where everyone’s dying
    I’m from the slavery hills
    When they are sturdy as an oak
    That’s where I’m from
    I’m from a place where bullying
    Is tolerated in a community
    I’m from a place where our American girls
    Are being kidnapped

    I’m from Atlanta, Georgia
    Where violence occurs outside of homes
    People getting killed because of bizarre things
    I am from loud music playing all night
    That’s where I’m from
    I am from people hanging out on the street after dark
    I am from cookouts with the smell of ribs, hot dogs, and burgers
    I am from a place where my family loves me
    That’s where I’m from
    And will always be there for me whenever I need them
    I’m from happiness and love
    I’m from self- determination and confidence
    That’s where I’m from

    Where I’m From
    I am from blue and black skies,
    from day to nightly lies,
    I am from deforestation and poor vegetation,
    to where you can see the dirt and patches of grass,
    I’m from travel and discovery,
    from one address to another,
    I’m from freshly made dough to where am I going to go,
    I am from learning and not burning,
    I’m from where police officers crowd the streets,
    and not where they need to be,
    I’m from early boyfriends to heartbreak feelings,
    To where failure is not an option, but TRYING is the key,
    Nobody knows who I really am, but hopefully my long lasting FAM,
    I am from where the people want to make it to heaven, which should be their destination,
    Where sin is heavy and not enough peace,
    I’m from where you have more pop music than church music in your phone,
    I am from where children care about clothes, shoes, and hair
    More than an education to get the clothes, shoes, and hair fixed,
    I’m from a world that I don’t know but my zip code,
    I’m from Love, Loyalty, and Respect to where theres not enough around
    And where you can turn your life around.

    I’m from the snowflakes that fall on the ground telling children to come around
    I’m from ear sizzling sounds of cop car sirens and beeping horns
    Busy streets trash at my feet
    I’m from gigantic buildings that decorate the sky dark alleys where people hide
    I’m from abandon parks not being able to see the stars when it’s dark
    I’m from the apartment building view where I see lost buildings and new hopes and dreams
    I’m from the beauty behind the madness
    I’m from where dreams are lost and found
    I’m from Brooklyn New York

    Where I’m From
    I’m from suburban houses
    From family sized cars
    From home cooked meals

    I’m from where creativity and confidence are key
    From rough jokes and tough love
    From working on the weekends

    I’m from where school is a necessity
    Where A’s are praised and B’s are frowned on
    Where competitive spirit runs free

    I’m from where being the oldest is a good thing
    And holidays are spent with a feast

    I’m from blue and green
    And in between
    Where animals are celebrated
    And are loved and cherished

    From my parents
    My sister
    My family
    From the home of the Panthers
    That’s me.

    “Where I’m From”

    I’m from a low populated area where the grass isn’t
    really green.
    A place where everyone knows each other.
    “Hey!” and “Hi!” is all you hear.
    Where the roads have bumps
    And hills that cause you to shake.

    In the country,
    All you smell is freshly cut grass.
    Old houses built in the 1980’s sit
    Happily with their owners.
    Stray dogs and cats run everywhere.
    Abandoned homes no humidity, just dry.
    Tornadoes form, but rarely though.
    Birds communicate while cars zoom by.
    A peaceful little town.

    A place unheard of, that’s where
    I’m from, the natural state, and
    I’m proud.

    Where I’m From

    I’m from a place where your always hot
    Where the sun is always hot
    Sweet always dripping down your face
    My home is a great place

    Playing in the woods with your animal friends
    Fighting with your brother over simple mistakes
    That’s is the place I’m from

    Friendly neighbors that everyone knows
    Falling off your bike giving you a bruise
    This is where I’m from Georgia
