Short Poems

1. “Roots”
I’m from the land of palm trees and sandy shores,
Where the sun shines bright and the sea never bores.
I’m from the smell of honeycomb and fresh-cut grass,
Where the air is warm and the summers never pass.

2. “Memories”
I’m from the late-night talks and silly giggles,
Where we whispered secrets and shared our troubles.
I’m from the family dinners and cozy nights,
Where we laughed and loved till the morning light.

3. “Wanderlust”
I’m from the desire to see the world and explore,
To wander through foreign lands and never be bored.
I’m from the love of adventure and the unknown,
To experience new cultures and let my soul roam.

4. “Home”
I’m from the feeling of comfort and belonging,
Where my heart is happy and my soul is singing.
I’m from the warmth of hugs and familiar faces,
Where I’m surrounded by love in all the right places.

Medium Poems

1. “Roots”

I am from a small town,
Where the streetlights shine bright,
On the worn brick roads,
And the stars light up the night.

I am from a homey house,
Where the porch swing sways free,
And the scent of fresh flowers,
Drifts through the sweet breeze.

I am from a tight-knit family,
Whose love never dwindles,
And the southern hospitality,
That always makes me giggle.

This is where I’m from,
A community that feels like home,
And though I may wander far,
My roots will always roam.

2. “The Sea”

I am from the ocean,
Where the waves crash loud,
And the salty breeze blows,
As the seagulls soar proud.

I am from sandy shores,
Where the seafoam glimmers,
And the sun sets fiery,
As the day finally simmers.

I am from a world below,
Where the divers explore,
And the coral reefs flourish,
As the creatures adore.

This is where I’m from,
A world of mystery and awe,
Where the sea calls me back,
To the place where dreams draw.

3. “The Mountains”

I am from the peaks,
Where the air is clean,
And the sun shines bright,
As the foliage gleams.

I am from the quiet,
Where the wild things roam,
And the streams flow clear,
As the deer make their home.

I am from the awe,
Where the views are grand,
And the trees stand tall,
As the mountains command.

This is where I’m from,
A land of mighty heights,
And though I may wander,
I’ll never forget my sights.

Long Poems

Where I’m From

I am from the smell of fresh cut grass
From the sound of crickets chirping at dusk
I am from the tall oak tree in the backyard
And the swing set that stood beside it

I am from the endless cornfields
From the quiet country roads
I am from farm-to-table dinners
And home-baked apple pies

I am from the sound of my grandmother’s laughter
From the stories my grandfather told
I am from the handmade quilts on every bed
And the family photos lining the walls

I am from the small-town pride
From the high school football games
I am from the community that comes together
To help each other out in times of need

I am from the first time I saw the mountains
From the awe-inspiring beauty of the Rockies
I am from the skiing trips with family and friends
And the hiking trails that led to waterfalls

I am from the city lights of Chicago
From the hustle and bustle of the Windy City
I am from the deep-dish pizza and hot dogs
And the view from the top of the Hancock Building

I am from the early morning sunlight
From the quiet moments before the day begins
I am from the late night stargazing
And the dreams that keep me going

I am from the memories of my past
From the people and places that shaped me
I am from the hope for my future
And the journey that lies ahead.
