I Am From

44° 4' 40.998" N, 92° 30' 35.6076" W

I am from the rolling hills of Scotland,
I am from the white sand beaches of Spain,
I am from fighting, tears, and divorce,
I am from a broken home,
I am from vicious custody battles,
I am from cross country moves,
I am from struggling to make ends meet,
I am from second-hand clothes,
I am from not enough to eat,
I am from battles with depression and anxiety,
I am from the pressure from my family,
I am from the pressure from myself,
It is from all these hardships I have faced that I am from
But I am not from a place of giving up
