Guest writer Ryan Fanuele writes a poem titled “Where I’m From” about his life and experiences (Photo courtesy of Pixabay, photo credits to mpewny).

I am from the smells of sweet German and Italian food, that glistens in the pot of 15 years, that looks and tastes like fine dining. I am from the smells of cleanliness and Bleach that will hit like a factory of Downy in one go, that at first, makes you lose your sense of smell.

I am from the noises of beeping cars and screaming sirens that reminds me of home. That can knock ears right out of the way. Although for people that’s craziness but for me, that’s home.

I am from the songs that play “You are my sunshine my only sunshine, you make me happy, when skies are gray.” Sung by a beautiful voice that gives me and my branch relief and happiness.

I am from the protection of my elder men, with their nice spiky hair and as tall and strong as can be. Who help me in rough times of need. Who help me to be the best I can be, who make me, me.

I am from the care of my elder women, with their beautiful silky hair and rather long noses. Who help me in times of need. Who help me to be the best I can be, who make me, me.

I am from the sights of a rich place. Where the streets will make you feel brand new. Where the lights will inspire you. Where the windows glisten in the lights of the red and yellow sky.

I am from playing baseball as a family sport. After every throw of the ball, I get a rush of excitement [with] the red striped white ball. Then after every game, I get happiness from my family when I see them.

I am from playing the Wii console with my family every weekend. Where there are many laughs and also many competitions. Also the occasional “TURKEY!” line that brings happiness to everyone.

I am from the many parties hosted by many of my family members and the famous Knapp party. Where you catch up with [one another’s] love. Also to exchange laughs and gifts of love and happiness.

I am from a place called Pine Lake Manor. With the loving family and others we know from every year. With the competitions to win ice cream or a t-shirt plus happiness from your family and friends.

I am from the gift of happiness and love. That push[es] me to be who I am now. That I will continue to cherish forever.
