Where I Come From
I’m from a street where I hear gun shots or car tires screeching.
I’m from faith in God.
He doesn’t judge me.
I’m from long line of people who care about me
but are on my case 24/7.
I’m from confusion about what’s good for me.
I’m from laughter over people making me smile.
I come from a blessed family.
I’m from love, and I know that
because the people around me show it.
I’m from fear, especially when I think about what’s going to happen.
I come from a long line of shoe strings.
I come from experiences like going from here to there.
I come from Faith and Love.
And I wish my life
would become Beautiful.
