Where I'm From : Here's My Story
I am from the pail of water,
from wooden dolls and rice balls.
I am from the mud hut by the river.
I am from the water lily,
I am from singing all night and
From Renu and Paul
from stay indoor and
shut up, you are too small.
I am from Assam, India and Bangladesh,
from herbal soup and flower fritters.
From surviving and sharing laughter
I am from poor eyesight and eating right.
I am from blue hills, from people on the move
I am from spreading hope and love.
