I’m from satirical comics and jokes about math

From sitting in the back and never talking

I’m from teacher’s pet and eating lunch in the classroom

From headphones at full volume while walking down the hallway

I’m from faded flannels and dirty high top sneakers

From youtube videos in the early hours of the morning

A bright screen lighting up a dark world

From almost broken glasses and hair blowing in the wind
I’m from Saturday mornings at theme parks and baseball fields

From the smell of sunscreen and illusory polaroids

From rushed cosplays and oh look it’s the sunrise

Im from fandom phone cases and tee shirts

Im from forever being a poet

And winged eyeliner resting above tattoo chokers and dip dyed hair

Im from take no prisoners

And   do it now think later

Im from catchy alternative rock

Indie music stores and nerdy podcasts

From family means everything

But family don’t end in blood
