Where I'm From

I’m  from distinct places.
From divergent people, cultures, and ethnicities.
I come from Gigantic places and compact places.

From a horn honking, yellow taxi filled, bustling city with record setting skyscrapers.
Moving to a little city, where the only record consists of the football team.
I come from Chicago to Hartland.

I come from that willow tree in the backyard.
Swaying in the wind, laid back, losing branches, but growing back.
I come from down the earth humans.

I come from Brian and Andrea.
Get up and go get it, never give up, and reach for the stars mentality.
I come from authentic people.

I come to a new school.
Not knowing who I am or what to do. Why me?
I come from determination.

I come from dedication.
One more rep will put me over you, that work hard play harder disposition.
I come from strenuous hours on the court.

I come from a technological generation.
Criticized for “being on their phones” but not understanding the elegance of kids in this era.
I come from sticking up for yourself and knowing what you are worth.

I am from distinct places.
From divergent people, cultures, and ethnicities.
I come from Gigantic places and compact places.
