Where I’m From
I am from call of duty,
from Playstation and Xbox .
I am from an apartment building in the Bronx, large, dark, and smelling of chemicals .
I am from the park
the smell of grass that is mother nature
I am from El barrio where spanish plays out loud
And hair like annuel,
And Libio and Libio II.
I am from the love
I am from the house of Jesus .
I’m from new york city with a bloodline of a puerto rican,
Pizza and sandwiches are my household choice of food.
From the immigrant grandpa who fled from cuba to live a life of freedom,
And a mother who sacrifice her teenage years to care for a son ,
and the father that had drug addiction who recovered to be a better father.
I am from a childhood of struggle and sorrow.
I am from friends that created a brotherhood
I am from years of identity creation.
I am responsible for creating the legacy for the last name.
