Poetry On Odyssey: I Am From

I am from Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska.

I am from a town where Target was an hour away.

I am from the most boring in city in Nebraska.

I am from empty church pews and full school desks.

I am from the desk at the back of the classroom.

I am from childish insecurity.

I am from procrastination.

I am from books that line the Young Adult section.

I am from a bookstore.

I am from broken glass on the highway.

I am from a hospital bed and IV bags.

I am from trauma.

I am from good memories gone sour

I am from broken hearted bitterness.

I am from kindness, compassion, and caring.

I am from healing, still healing.
