My roots. Not completely but close enough.


I am from laughs and giggles
From music and singing
From house to house,
That was just my beginning.

I am from the small town of Butler
With a teacher who smoked,
Who I caught in the bathroom, 
But was taken as a joke.

The trees that dance near my house
While they flow in the wind
That hugs me and holds me
Until its dark, and I have to go in.

I am from a hard working mom,
Who is nice to everyone,
Treat others the way you want to be treated
Don’t stop until the job’s done.

I am from my odd dad
He is like no other
I get my face from my mom,
And my left hand from my father.

I became my older sister
Her personality surrounds me,
Although she is away at college, 
She protects me and guides me.

My little brother is my twin
He follows everywhere that I go
I am the solid figure,
And right behind me is my shadow.

I am from my little sister
I learn from her everyday
No matter what I am always beside her,
In every possible way.

Well, that is only a little information
As you can see,
For now, you know where I am from,
And now you know me.
