I am from pink walls in my room

To the music that soothes me to sleep

I am from my Grandmothers Earline and Mary

To my mom, Penny and dad, Jerome

I am from the insane craziest friends to the ones I barely talk to anymore because they weren’t true friends

I am from hanging with my best friends Alexus M., Alexis J., Artesha, Jalea, and Amber on the weekends to seeing them at school

I am from riding my bike on a sunny day with my buds on the block

To just chilling on skates in the street
I am from you, “Crazy as I don’t know what”

To I don’t know what to even do with you anymore

I am from people who think they know me to people who know nothing about me
To people that have prejudges against me

I am just from being the loudest out of everyone to being the most creative one
I am just from being myself, Mykia.
