My version of George Ella Lyons poem. This is one of my favorite writing exercises and one I encourage all to try. This is where I'm from:

"Where I'm From" by George Ella Lyons

I am from my writing

from tears and love.

I am from never fitting in

from pretending to be okay.

I am from self doubt

from perfectionism picking at my brain.

I am from great at listening

from feeling unheard.

I am from nature

from green trees and staring up at the night sky.

I am from music and film

from easily attached to fictional characters.

I am from daydreams in my head

from the comfort of my bed.

I am from pink blush and red lips

from brown eyes and poor vision.

I am from telling jokes

from noticing the little things.

I am from summer days

from sunsets and chocolate cake.

I am from self-growth

from excited for change.

I am from enjoying my own company

from taking better care of myself.

I am from dreams to make the world a better place

from spreading love and never losing sight of what is important.

I am present.

I am me.
