I Am From

by Laina Henderson


I am from the mountains are calling and I must go.

I am from saltwater heals everything. (Even the deepest of wounds)

I am from the Evergreen State, where the 12th Man is strong.

I am from running ‘til my legs won’t move another inch.

I am from blue and yellow represent.

I am from clock 3rd best time in district, working toward 1st.

I am from a diverse world with places I love to visit. 

I am from the city life of New York.  The laid back life of Hawaii.

I am from the beautiful land of Alaska.  The sunsets on the boardwalk in Seaside, Oregon.

I am from inside jokes galore.

I am from the laughing and fun of going to Wild Waves with the crew.

I am from the happiness of living my life to the fullest.  Living out of being loved by God.
