I am from

I am from Canning Jars, from cloth lines and country air.

I am from the vegetable and fruit garden, fresh meat and bare feet.

I am from full hearts, empty pockets and hard work

I am from the crocus, the cornfields and woods.

I am from fathers and grandmothers, from homesteaders who worked all day long. I am from mothers and grandmothers who loved us all.

I am from the early bird catches the worm and from never give up

From trust and honor and love of nature.

I am from a God who cares about who and what I will become

I'm from the longing to explore other countries, from Seboldshausen and Lower Saxony


I am from canned beans and apple pie.

From the country life the sport shooting career and a hopeful future

I am from Karin and Wolfgang, from love and hope.

Where are you from?
