"I Am From"

Our assignment tonight in class was to model a poem that we read tonight in class and write a version of our own. This is mine! Enjoy!

"I Am From"
I am from the big family of nine, the oldest of five girls and two boys.
I am from faith, family and God are the most important things.
I am from Daddy’s little girl and Mama’s helper.
I am from sunny days outside, riding my bike and playing grocery store, babies and princesses.
I am from books and music, singing and laughter.

I am from red dirt roads, pick up trucks, deer and rattlesnakes.
I am from “Capture the Flag” with my cousins in the pasture.
I am from cactus, stickers, hay and bluebonnets.
I am from riding horses and milking the cows.
I am from roses in Grandmother’s garden and watering the vegetables with Papa.

I am from football, Friday night lights, and cheerleaders.
I am from Sunday morning church, “what did you learn in Sunday school?”
I am from “because I said so” and “yes, they’re all ours”.

I am from Grandmother’s peach cobbler and Grandma’s pecan pie.
I am from Hershey’s chocolate on my first birthday and no white dairy products.
I am from Texas and seven cities, a moving van and boxes.
I am from freckles and blue eyes, hard work and responsibility.
I am from love that lasts forever.

That gave me chills. I love it! What is the poem you modeled this after? It might be a good "blog assignment" for the rest of us.
