  • 1. Where I’m From
    Dustin Clark
  • 2. I’m from crowded streets
    With stories to tell
  • 3. With buildings to the sky
    The walking city
  • 4. Burdened by a sheet of white
    That comes knee high
  • 5. Not many memories of my original place
    Only a process of remembrance left in my case
  • 6. I moved down 5 states to a more rural place
    A place where my memories overwhelm my mind
  • 7. From hot summers of eating dairy queen
    And bailing hay
  • 8. To cold winters of sledding
    And watching wood burn from a flame
  • 9. With fall of colors vibrant enough to
    brighten any day
    To spring where the Japanese
    maple bloomed all day
  • 10. Once again I moved on to a new place
    A place of
    Tar Heels
    And Deacons
    And a wolfpack
    With some Blue Devils
  • 11. I’m from a place where the air is crisp to breathe
    An area so peaceful and beautiful
    Where you can hear the rustle of the leaves
  • 12. I now call this home
    And have for 8 years
  • 13. Although the thought of my prior home
    Can leave me fighting back the tears
  • 14. So here I am now, becoming who I want to be
    With only the thoughts of crowded streets
    And a blooming Japanese maple tree
  • 15. Credit’s
