Where I'm From poem

A Poem by Misty.C
"

This is a poem I was assigned to write in my honors English class. I read it to the class, as I suppose it was assigned for us to get know each other better, I wish it to serve the same purpose now.

"
I am from the babbling creek,
The graceful tears of rain that sing
A melody so soft and sweet
It always sent me right to sleep.

I am from the summer days 
Where the grass would tickle my feet,
The little girl who ran after Ice cream trucks
Yeah, that was me.

I am from the Winter days
Where snow would sometimes fall.
I'd roll around in clouds of white
until noon day would call.

I am from a warm embrace
The inspiration of a smile,
The people that surrounded me
Grew to comfort me a while.

I am from the creaking floorboards.
Of a house made so long ago.
The ground I constantly trudged 
My grandfather owned.

I am from the sounds of bullets
The Call's Of "Yeah I got a gun!"
I guessed we seemed like crazy rednecks
But, Hey I was still young.


I am from a elders wisdom
Their knowledge filled my mind
Their words will always linger
I'll share them all in time

This is who I am
Who I'll hope I'll always be
And these are all the little things
That came together to create me.- Misty Clayton

I remember when you shared this in class, your's was so amazing! You took half no a fourth of the time it took me to write mine. Over all, you did wonderful, sister.

Haha- actually this was a stupid mistake on my part for clicking submit when I didn't copy my poem onto to the entry. Although I appreciate your review of it as a artistic statement, I wish it was that indeed, although sadly I'm only confided in the nonsense of my forgetfulness, I'll have to fix this- I clearly couldn't read -nothing- to my class and receive an A for it.

I've decided the fact this is blank is an artistic statement. Or at least, I've decided to steal that and publish a blank poem in a month or so, when everyone's forgotten I just said I was going to do that.
