I Am

I am from a dad in one place

And a mom in another,

A family full of different colors.

Loving all and trusting none,

A broken family is where I'm from


I am from "One Nation Under God"

And "In Jesus' Name I Pray"

From seeing people make bad choices

And turning the other way


I am from running in the woods

And swimming in the creek

From reading all the books I can

And being called a "geek"


I am from being proud of who I am

And standing up for those who aren't

From "Life is a Highway"

And " Keep on Dreaming Even If It Breaks Your Heart"


If you make a movie about my past,

It would probably be a sad one

There have been many struggles in my life

But that just proves I'll have a better future

That's where I am from
