I Am From – Haylee Fischi

With gratitude toward George Ella Lyon

I am from diaries,
From unspoken words and unspoken thoughts. 
I am from a canvas
And paintbrush strokes
I am from the roses I have received.
The grass where I've laid
Feeling the earth's connection on my back.

I am from love and heartbreak
From comfort and despair.
I’m from laughter and rambling words.
And putting others' needs before my own.

I am from honesty and trust
From good things come to those who wait.
I am from old photos
And reminisces
I am from nothing more than replaceable items 
And memories.
