I am from pen and paper

From black and white photos

And pastel colour pallets.

I am from an artist’s mind

Painted on a personal canvas

Shaped like a ball of clay

By gentle hands.

 

I am from the flower patch.

I run through the meadow

With a crown made of daisies

I am nature.

I grow and shrink like glorious Morning Glories

Bringing my own beauty for the world to see.

 

I am from the creek.

An isolated spot known to few

Where I secluded myself

From the rest of the world

And became one with my surroundings

I am from cornfields.

I grow with my surroundings

I thrive off other people

And fall in line with the crowd.

 

I am from individuality.

I was given free reign to shape myself

Into who I am today

By a mother

Who was always there for me

She never left my side and

Held me in loving arms

And that is where

I am from.
