Where I'm From


United States
40° 0' 11.9556" N, 76° 14' 10.77" W

I am from surrender
From obeying every order
A tarnished childhood
That ended much too soon

I am from sacrifice and separation
From compromise and desperation
Trials that were sometimes
Too hard to bear
I am from missed opportunities

From unwarranted discipline
I am from the chains of childhood bondage
From losing my innocence
I am from submission
From being punished for others' mistakes
I am from learning the hard way
