A Poem By Sophie


I Am From::
I am from Tide detergent and big African baskets.
I am from a cozy green house with a small blue car.
I am from strawberries in Grandma’s garden.
I am from stupid jokes and Fairmount Family Camp.
I am from empathy and night-time prayers.
I am from; whenever we are together, that is home.
I am from pepperoni and beef jerky.
I am from Papaw and Grandma Jane's cookouts.
I am from funny uncles and defensive basketball.
I am from a big white wall filled with family photos.

-Sophie, age 11
