Where I’m From

By: Laura


I am from strong winds and dark nights

I am from suffocating heat

but ice cold hearts

I belong to the air because

I am from it’s wind

I am from ice thawing talks

I’m from screaming winds

and completely blind nights.

I am from the lone star state.


I am from the illusions of the wind

and it’s whispers in the night.

I am from the love of the bird gliding through the sky.

I’m from it’s wings and it’s promise to return.

I’m from deep deep water

streams and blood thirsty earth.

It takes from me.

But it also gives, it gives to me.

I am from blurry colors and distant lights.

They say I am from the lost but no

I chase freedoms emotions and

when I laugh the wind laughs with me.
