Where I’m From Poem

I am from 50 cent chips from the corner store ,

from big buildings and cars.

I am from the childhood memory apartment, fun, big, loud.

I am from the red roses, pink carnations, sun the representation of love.

I am from annual family cookouts and thick hair

From Daddy and Mommy.

I am from the caring for people like grandma and my love for music like Daddy

From “You look just like your Mom ” and “You play music just like your Dad”.

I am from Christianity believing in Jesus Christ

I am from Brooklyn New York and North Carolina , sweet potato pie and fried chicken

From the time my parents met , the passing of my grandmother

I am from a place where everyone looks out for each other.
