I am from….
I Am From…
I am from the hills,
Where I am the only one of my kind,
Where nothing bad ever happens,
Where I can have my peace of mind.
I am also from Decoto,the corner of 10th & D,
We always lock the door,
Cars do donuts on our street.
I am from the soccer field,
Muddy cleats and smelly socks,
Turf burns and a torn ligament,
And Dad’s after game talks.
I am from a hopeful family,
Who’s depending on me to make it far,
But they don’t notice the constant pressure,
I’m supposed to be their star.
I am from anxiety,
Fear of failure and constant stress,
I am constantly worrying,
I can feel it in my chest.
But I am also from resilience and determination,
And already proud of who I have yet to become,
I can overcome any struggle,
Thanks to who, what, and where I am from.
