Where I’m From
I am from cooking and cleaning
From Robert and Cindi.
I am from the Boggy down Bronx.
I am from one apartment to another.
I am from my family,
My family that loves each other.
I am from being the little kid,
To being the big uncle.
I am from doing the right thing.
I am from snow and sun.
From being with family,
to being with friends,
to being with both.
I am from short to tall.
From buzz cut to an afro.
I am from watching Television,
To video games.
I am from reading games to adventure games.
I am from the Rugrats,
To Tech TV.
I have gone from Green Dog to Ecko,
and from finger painting to homework.
I am from hating math but love writing.
From having fun to worrying about school.
I am from one dollar fifty to 99 cents.
From six to twelve.
I am from family vacations to my first ride on a plane.
From flying a kite to driving a go-kart.
I am from never leaving the country.
I am from Frederick Douglas Academy,
I am from the Bronx.
A week that seems the same all through life.
I am just 18
One teen next to millions
I am from 18 years of life
Some good some bad
I am from myself…………
