My PlaceI am from Lexington.
I am from my mom, dad and brother John.
I am from Gloucester
where I spend my summers
and the air is tainted with the smell of fish.
I am from the Bahamas
where I feel at home; everyone is friendly
and the sun never seems to set.
I am from Maine
where I hunt during the cold autumn months
and can get away from all the stress.
I am from steak and potatoes.
Hard working and respectful is where I am from.
