Parts of Me

Trailer park memories,

family living together tighly,

apple and cherry trees; 

they are all a part of me. 

 

Alley ways and side streets,

scraped elbows and bruised knees,

tire swings and short sleeves;

they are all a part of me.

 

Long nights and long hugs,

loud fights and ears held on tight,

crooked frames and broken hearts;

they are all a part of me.

 

Homemade blankets and needle-stabbed thumbs,

laughing lungs and hands held on,

toothless smiles and long talks;

they are all a part of me.

 

Carshow and grease covered shoes,

chicken feed and ducks running loose,

long rides and many homes;

they are all a part of me.

 

Family fueds and tears stained pillows,

lengthy journal and random poems,

goal orientated and goals away from home;

they are all a part of me.  

This poem is about: 
Me
