I Am From

I am from…

Tea and scones, royal families and pubs, fish and chips and wine. I am from Pretzels and Laugenbrotchen, Spagetti Eis and German Christmas Markets.    Long walks through the forest filled with imagination and wonder.

I am from Operatic and dance masterpieces, Jazz music and wine tours.                                                                                                                                                                                                 I from experience, travel, culture and adventures.

I am from mocking and taunting.  Suppressed tears and bottled up emotions.                                                                                                                                                                            Licking my wounds and swallowing the lumps in my throat.  Vulnerable and sensitive

I am from cages.  Trapped, held down and locked away.

I am from different, lonely and marching to the beat of my own drum.  But I am from different, exciting and unique, creating delicious possibilities full of imagination and dreams.

I am from strength and fighting.  Justice and education. Love and embracing.

I am from God’s endless love. Created in His image.  Seeing myself new.

I am from creativity, hard work and determination.

I am from bound and am becoming… from FREE.
