Where im from

I am from Notebook

from desk and pen

I am from the concrete streets

I am from the Dandelion on the sidewalk

the Bright yellow color

I am from movie night

and black hair

from Sofia

and Faham another family name and Maryam

I am from the self-awareness

and compassion

From belief in myself

and self-accountability

I am from Islam and worship of God

Further description.

I am from New York and Nigeria

Rice and plantains

From my first day of elementary

the kind teachers

and the Day of my Sofia’s birth

I am from the wall in the living room

  1. Your poem really lets me know you better, and I love how you showed your background and your own beliefs, with believing in yourself and having accountability, as well as your worship of Islam and god.
