From one younger brother and sister.

Until the age of sixteen;

From watching Tom and Jerry and Power Rangers.

From catching fireflies, bees, and sometimes toads.

From going to the movies and going to the mall.
I am from listening to Biggie, J. Cole, Kendrick, and Daft Punk;
From staying up all night playing videos game and eating a bunch of junk.

From traveling to Florida and going so far.

From camping for sneakers with my friends on 34th street.

From going to the beach every hot summer day.
I am from from watching funny and interesting youtube videos;
From chilling with my friends and watching Netflix shows.
I am from playing in Rosedale Park;

I am from being on my phone part of the day;
From growing up and seeing everything in many different ways.
I am from a place 600 miles away;
I am from a place that is close by the bay.
I am from a place that I call home;
From a place I know and love and call my very own.
