I am from the woods

From dirt roads and green pastures

I am from Bronson

(white sand, one traffic light

dust and mud)

I am from barb wire fences

the black and white cows

who roam around trapped behind the fence

grazing on green grass

I'm am from my neckalace, a gold key

that reminds me of my mothers love

From Don and Angie

I'm from the country folks

and the rednecks

From hurry up and quiet down

I'm from he maketh me lie down in green pastures

he leadeth me by still waters

and all of the memorized verses

I'm from Ace Hardware and Tractor Supply

Collard greens and Sweet Tea

I'm from a broken family

because of my parents divorce

from the many nights

of the tears i shed

On my shelf lays a photo album,

Filled with familar faces

I am from those memories

swimming around in my head

holding on to them for forever
