Where I'm From

I am from cuts and bruises
from splints and bandages
I am from the white walls of doctors offices
the cold chill of the overused air conditioning
I am from glass bones and ligaments as strong as rubber bands
from the hard work of rehabilitation

I am from a family of variety
from east coast to west
I am from soldiers to doctors
from brilliance to stupidity
I am from playing marines with grandpa
from the frosty blizzards of New Jersey.
