Where we're from

More "Where We're From" list-style poems from second through fifth graders at the OUR Center.

Where I'm from is my grandma's place.
In my grandma's house I hate my sister.
In my grandma's house I hear dogs barking.
And my dad yelling. And Tyson
playing on the xbox 360. And mostof all
I can feel the world reversing.

Ohio

Where I'm from there is winter is snow
Where I'm from is the winter blues
Where I'm from is where birds chirp and
where motors roar
Where I'm from there is cold temperatures
Where I'm from the neighbors's kids yell back and forth
Where I'm from neighbors' dog barks.
Where I'm from the snow blows hard.
Where I'm from the wind whistles.
Where I'm from the trees fell down by the wind.

Crazy Things Are Real

Where I'm from my lake acts like it is alive
Where I'm from gators eat birds that land in
their mouth. Where I'm from I hear carsdrive by. Where I'm from bats land in my
hair at night and butter fingers fly out of your
mouth. Where I'm from there is a giant
biggerthan the world.

Nathan, 3rd

Where I'm from

Hey, yo where you from? I'm from the projects.
Where I'm from people are stealing out the stores
Where I'm from is some black kids and adults
Where I'm from is a dumpter with a lot of stink bugs and trash.
Where I'm from is where people go up and down on stairs
Where I'm from is kids and adults throwing down a lot of trash around.

Da'Miah, 4th
