Where Am I From?
Age Group: Adult
I am from red dirt race tracks
~old cars and body shops
I am from nuclear power plants
~and crime in the city streets
I am from places that should not be touched
~ and words that should never be spoken
I am from bigotry and hate
~adultery and drug abuse
I am from men who seek pleasure
~ and women who serve their men
I am from fathers that are never there
~ and mothers that are never gone
I am from Southern Belles
~and California Beaches
I am from green grass, dirt roads
~ and eucalyptus groves
I am from love and coddling
~ from family dinners at the table
I am from music and art
~ and singing and dancing
I am from mountains, beaches
~ and everybody knows their neighbors
I am from frogs and honeybees
~ from cows and horses
I am from the Lord and Lady
~ the Goddess and Horned God
I am from the trees, the dirt
~and the water and the sky
I am from the divine
~and the divine is from me.
Author's Notes: This was an assignment from a poetry group that I joined earlier today.
It asked us to reflect and answer the question: "Where are you from?" without giving places.
Great assignment. It really begs a person to dig deep in to their past and exam what has shaped them throughout their lifetime.
