Where Neela Is From
Transcript of Where Neela Is From
I am from instruments,
from Pottery Barn and Danskin tights.
I am from the family photographs and artwork on the walls,
special and sentimental.
The brightest memories of our past
I am from the rose bushes,
the prairie grass
with those blades that have cut me many times throughout
I am from family meals
and Christmas photos.
From a cross-country runner
and a good-heart doctor.
I’m from the bad English and,
the crazy Indian grandparents.
From the “Get good grades!” and
“Don’t destroy the house!”
I am from Diwali and Christmas,
no culture stronger than the other.
I am from Carrom boards and American Girl Dolls,
chicken tikka masala and pizza.
From the big stuffed purple unicorn named “Lila”
to "The Going To Bed Book" of each day’s night.
From the “Teletubies” and “Dragon Tales”,
to seventh grade algebra.
The no worry toddler years now just a dream
as my life swirls around me
asking questions like,
“What will I do?”, “Who will I be?”.
The sweet little memories
of a tiny girl, who asked no questions.
So happy I will be
when I figure out my life ahead of me.
When I get down I think to myself,
Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase!
A poem by: Neela Nallamothu
