I Am From

I am  from singing in the shower
From dreams and promises shattering like glass
I am from the darkness of my bedroom
From lies about reality


I’m from grace and evilness
From family and friends
I’m from false hopes and laziness
And finding my true self


I’m from “Stop trying” to “you’ll never be good”
From “Sticks and stones may break my bones and words will never hurt me”
I’m from lies about what hurts
I am from California a place of new beginnings


I am from Dusk till Dawn
That meer moment where nighttime swallows all traces of light
I am from a night so dark there is no dreaming
A place where lies became my new truth
Where only reality can save you
