I am from the endless stars
and the ethereal sunsets painted across the sky.
I am from thunderstorms,
dancing in the rain
and summer crickets that keep you up all night.
I am from my grandma’s endless fudge
and the taste of fresh mango that emits a sweet fragrance.
I am from soft lullabies
and “Don’t know why”
to “keep your head up,”
and “Let yourself shine!”
I am from a free spirit,
and music that’s good for the soul.
I am from endless laughter
and long cries that take your breath away.
I am from the earth,
from the fire, the rain.
I am from the universe as it falls into place
