WANT poetry corner: I am from…

By Aidan Manley

Wilson High School

I am from the feeding the dog and Iams food and the scooper                     I am from the shady place behind the tree,                                                     (cool, quite, secluded area, that is damp and filled with life)                         I am from the vibrant daffodils and the sweet persimmons trees.

I am from brownies and the slender,                                                                 from Doreen and Jason                                                                                         I am from the be quite, the settle downs,                                                       and the always remembered slow down.                                                          I am from the bright sunrises that create warmth and memories                 and sunsets that ends the day to pass on the memories for tomorrow.      I am from the sky scraping mountains and the weird sea level city             I am from the fillet mignon and rochlette                                                         I am from the missing Yachts that will never be found                               and from the odd private schools                                                                     that will forever be there

I am from the shelves of many memories past along through generations the mementos stored in the living room for all to see.                                 From past pictures to war documents.                                                               I am from the smiling, supportive faces of my friends                                 and family that will always be there for me .
