I am from courage 
born through fear 
born of shame 

I am from laughter 
soaking wet 
with music 

I sing 
am song 
am joy 

I am from dreams forgotten 
from a $13 guitar 
from shoot – arounds in the rain 
from three boys 
two girls
and dinners for seven 

I am from hope
from endless hope
shivering hope
trembling hope
