I Am From…
I am from a time with iPods
“Be Green” bumper stickers
A school where more life lessons are learned from fellow students than academics from teachers
And a time where talking fast is considered music.
I am from best friends
Having late nights
Understanding stars and rainbows
Running in the rain and singing at the top of our lungs
Even if we’re not in the same place.
I am from families that poke fun
Lingering after dinner to laugh
Taking trips to see every type of landscape
Pets that become part of the family
Some for longer than others
I am from having yearly block parties
From camps and dances
From life-long siblings we only know for six months
I am from the newest age, from this year, this week, this moment, now.
