I am from a small family of the city of lights and entertainment of California
Yet only to leave my home to move every year
I am from a family of separation and despair
Where fun and togetherness are just words
Where loneliness and fights are always present
Like a rose bush where the petals are torn and dipped in black paint
I am torn inside emotionally from the world
As I fight alone and misunderstood by all
I am from the city of wonder, travel and dreams
Yet under a cloud of cool mystic crystal rain to shield me from my future
I am from the dark hole of hate and disappointment
I am from the ocean waves as it gently meets the cliff side
I am from the cool breeze rushing throughout the trees and homes
I am from the islands of darkness and lost
With my bottle of sealed emotions only to hide and never open
I am from the cool abyss of depression
I am the one and only yet much is expected of me, alone
From pressure and confusion, the way in s blinded of my eyes
I am who I am yet want to change
I strive to prove myself better then what meets the eye
I am from the hearts for friends around me more than the warmth of a family love
I am from the ears of sweet musical of both vocal and instruments.
From the classical winds of a
I am from the nature of trees and peace
Where a gentle eagle over head, cry the song of the wind
And the grass and tree synchronize in rhythm with the sweet warm wind

This was an assignment in my creative writing class and as I was writing it, I just poured my heart and soul out into it. The way I felt for it and what I meant on my background of my past and some of the present.
