"It's not whether you get knocked down, it's whether you get back up"


I’m from where houses change,
but home remained.
From a two bedroom apartment,
to a four bedroom project.

I’m from tearing off the shingles,
ripping apart the yard,
to cutting the trees..
From tearing up the carpeting,
to knocking down walls.

I’m from 20 foot Christmas trees,
and gathering on the eve.
From Thanksgiving football games,
to hosting Easter-egg hunts.

I’m from football in the fall,
and basketball in the winter,
To spring volleyball,
summer baseball,
and over again.

I’m from Dad working overtime,
To Mom working double shifts,
while raising three children.
From balancing work and us kids,
to trying to keep us afloat.

I’m from where houses change,
but home remained.
From a two bedroom apartment,
to a four bedroom project,
one that I call home.
