I Come From is a poem inspired by a poetry workshop with Ruth Stacey, in which a template was featured where every stanza began with I come from.... Many poems following these lines have been written, but what first began as an exercise, developed into a lovingly sad confession and homesick poem about an immigrant who had left bittersweet memories behind. It is extremely introspective, and one of my favourite pieces of mine.

This piece has been published by Selcouth Station Press in their website, a place featuring amazing pieces that are as introspective and thought-provoking as this.
