SJ’s very first poem!

I Am From

I am from a far away place
With my Korean grandparents.

I am from a soft swing under a tree
Walks around my neighborhood checking cars.

I am from the good smells of my mom’s cooking
from the noises of dad’s BBQ.

I am from technology “where is my Victor Reader”
Jaws and youtube.

I am from my rice bowls and tuna
My crunchy chocolate mushrooms.

I am from my fun times skiing at Bear Valley
Riding a big truck with my family
