I Am From…
I am from people who ran away from bombs and guns
Trying to not get killed.
I am from people who tried to cross a border to be safe.
I am from parents who separated.
A dad who supports anything I do.
I am from a mom who doesn’t care what I do.
I am from a family that can risk their life helping me
Get an A+ for my science fair project.
I am from a family who has a Nerf Gun war
I am a kid who scrolls on tumblr laughing at dog gifs
I am a kid who is a Mirfanda.
I am a kid who wishes she can go to a kpop concert
I am a kid who wishes to eat bacon and be healthy
I am from a house who screams
At each other when a scary trailer comes on
I am from a house who sings Resentment by Beyoncé
I am from a house that isn’t normal
I am from a place where
You can smell fried vegetables
I am from a place where people try to be stress free
I am from a family that is average
I am from all of these things that I like because
They make me
