I am

by Destiny Mcdonald

I am from DTLA
The bustling sidewalk traffic
The bright colors and glistening clothes
And old buildings

I am from soaring over the line
Never touching the ground
Feeling the world dissolve
Watching what lies beyond

I am from harmonies and melodies
Altos and sopranos
Half and quarter notes
Sweet little tunes

I am from vanilla
From sugar and spice
From flour in the air
Frosting cakes till midnight

I am from my beloved protectors
From Rainbow, from Bella
From Naomi, from my rabbit, from Twilight
From Sassy, my best friend

I am from stories of magic lands
Mythical beings
Kings and queens
Princesses and princes

I am who I am because of these things
