I am from

This poem was created from the prompt Rarasaur shared on her blog. Thanks for the inspiration, Ra! (Prompt is below my poem.)


I am from this sunken couch
from dial-up internet and antenna TVs.
I am from kindness and empathy.
I am from the river.
(The water between two lands. It divides safety and the unknown.)

I am from Unity,
from french toast and ice cream.
I am from bare feet running in the yard.

I am from I love you, forever,
and sunrise, sunset.
Even now,
I am from the nostalgic memories
of finding my way.
You can blame me when there’s no one left to blame, I don’t mind.


Here is the prompt.
