I’m from the busy town of Stamford cars going by and stores on every street corner
I’m from the sandy beaches of Milford in my elevated beach house hearing a crash with every wave
I’m from the forests of Easton where everyone knows your name
I’m from spending time with the people I care about each and every day
I’m from The busy hallways of Helen Keller middle school with children from 6th to 7th and 8th grade not one the same
I’m from My Italian family in which every day a new story to tell at the holidays
I’m that city-living, beach-loving, small town-living, hallway-running, storytelling person
That is where I am from.
