Where I'm from

Where did I come from?


I come from my safe yet murderous environment.

I come from a dreadfulness of what the future brings. 

I come from bedtime stories and heroin. 


Every year is like a blink of an eye in the mosaic of time. 


I've successfully suffered and secretly silence every thought. 

I've discovered endless possibilities of life and habits I've always had. 

I've acquired 4 new black bands without realizing anything. 


While wasting my time waiting for him he moved on,

and like all good things so must I.


This poem is about: 
My family
My community
Our world
