What makes me... me?

What makes me... me?

My past makes me

My decisions make me

My upbringin makes me

My parents make me

Whether it was growing up in a poor neighborhood,

Having an empty fridge,

Or being told that my dreams won't come true.


My past makes me

It forms the way I think, 

The way I percive life.

The reason I think the way I think is what is around me:

My parents, my financial situation, my friends.


What makes me...me

Is, the people around me.

What I've been through,

The good times.

The bad times.

That's what makes me...me.

This poem is about: 
My family
My community
