Where I Am From
I am from a big country over a billion,
Different ethnic groups, different children.
“One-child policy” was strictly spoken;
Nothing was chosen.
I am from a small family of three,
Hand in hand we walked along the sea.
The word “kindness: was taught to me,
I am from the city of happiness,
Mountains, hot springs are countless.
I am from the flavor of sweet and sour,
Where love, caring were consistently given.
I am from the fresh Spring,
Where streets were always green with Banyan trees.
I am from the rainy Summer,
Where the smell of Jasmine entertains neighbor’s laughter.
I am from the breezy Autumn,
People gather, appreciate the reunion, tasty mooncake.
I am from the sparkly Winter,
The season of New Year, family warmth, the natural heater.
I have traveled too far, too long from the place I once belonged,
But I have kept it all deeply inside my heart.
This is where I am from.
