" Where I'm from" by Janaya LeeJohnson
I'm from the smell of cookies baking
from the board and card card games to the video games
from My Boo and Deathbed to See You Again and I Think She Likes Girls
from the kitchen counter to the horses outside
from the purples and the red to the "peanut gallery"
I'm from the skies so blue and the sun so hot
from the crazies to the psychopaths'
I'm from relationships and gossip
to the military stories
from family and friends
to the loud obnoxious music
from the falls and flying
from sisters to my lovers
I'm from snacking
to the "Dads cheating again"
from dogs and cats
I'm from those moments
the sweet and fiery
the innocents and the troubles
these moments will be cherished forever.
