I Am From This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

July 29, 2008

By WriterDancerLover, Fontana, CA

I am from
My green blankey and
Climbing out of my crib
From playing mermaid in the bathtub.

I am from walking my dog,
And the noise he made when I step on his tail.

I am from my sheep nightlight
And Blue’s Clues and the Berenstain Bears.
I am from spinning until
I can’t tell where I am and
Seeing the world upside-down.

I am from long days at school
And hurrying home to watch Pokémon.
From chocolate-chip cookies at
Grandma’s house.

I am from July days in the pool
And running through the sprinklers.

I am from the bed that I sleep on everyday, from the icecream that fell on the floor yesterday and the mouse in my room that won't go away.
