This is also the activity that I have done in my English Literacy class
“I Am From” Poem Template
Adapted by Levi Romero
Inspired by “Where I’m From” by George Ella Lyon
I am from cookhouse,
from ingredients and dishwash.
I am from the toys under the stair to paradise.
(unknown smell, the taste
I never test, feel I ever feel.)
I am from the Portulaca
The Madras Thorn whose long gone limbs I remember
as if they were my own.
I’m from Chinese and pagoda,
from dried shrimp and white hair.
I’m from love
and from her new house, she never knows
I’m from banana leaf
I’m from Chang Meng,
I’m from the first place that I cry.
and standing forest love to sit
and Chab Chhay
From she shut her eyes never open,
without saying goodbye.
get up at 2 am salty water comes out.
Next to my house is her document place
My parents call it the mean full house
keeping a very good memory with a smiling face
can imagine but can’t be real,
leaving never comeback.
