I am from the green grass circle of Middlesex,
From always being a Concord boy at heart, to loving my new Lawrence family.
From hating un-toasted gluten free bread
From eating in a dining hall.
I am from cool summers on Lake Erie in Canada to late summer relaxing sessions on the Cape
From having to tell everyone what a migraine is and people asking, "do you think you will go to Lawrence?"
From a writhed branch
Dead for many months
Emerges a Bud
Who is this boy in the mirror
He is tired from waking up at six
He drags his body down the stairs
He eats gluten free
As he walks he warms to the day
Trying to live up to his own expectations
Striving for a better self
