PROMPT: Where I'm From

19
Where I am from

I am from the stars in a polluted sky
Candied fruits and barbecued meat
Lights stung on the porch and flowers picked

I am from songs carried in from the wind
Wild flowers in open fields by the road
Skipping over sprinklers and tree roots

I am from laughing under the clouds
Running in roads and wasting summers
Pages written about crushes or memories

I am from broken glass and shattered hearts
Fixing things that never stopped breaking
Scars that didn't heal over time

I am from grass that tickles the bottoms of feet
The rock from a river with crystal blue water
Keeping secrets told under the biggest tree

That's where I am from
But I can't stay
Each paragraph here is written after a different memory that range from various ages. Shout out to the song Open Season by High Highs. It motivated me to write this and it's also my favorite song.

    This is a beautiful poem, but it's that last line that really got me and made me think, "whoa." Awesome job on this one!
