I saw this beautiful poem by Jessica on daysgoby and I just thought to myself, "How I wish I could write like that." Then I discovered that you could go here and get help to do exactly that. Here is my effort. Jessica's is still way better but this was fun to do. Feel free to do it too. C'mon, you know you want to.
WHERE I'M FROM.....
I am from a home with a large garden, many windows that open to the green of grass, bamboo and fruit trees.
I am from the dainty phloxes in flower pots and large rambutan trees, from orchid plants with roots on charcoal and the rich, clay soil.
I am from family brunches on Sundays and the infectious morning sneeze, from the Babas and the Nyonyas, the Loh's and the Lee's.I am from intelligent women and strong, silent men.
From fairy tales and fantasy lands and seeing the beauty of nature.
I am from a long line of Buddhists until one by one, we came to know about a loving Saviour and friend in Jesus.
I'm from the meeting of two silty and tin laden rivers, adventurers from the Middle Kingdom, of sweet and sour stir-fried mangrove crabs and the bitter-sweet pork with buah keluak.
From heroes who were willing to die for their friends, but who knew how to live fully and love nature and from deep devotion to children.
I am from seeds now scattered across the globe but united still by the home country, memories of childhood on clean sandy tropical beaches and the love of a multicultural feast of culture and food.
