" Where im from " !

Where I'm from

I am from kitchen

from forks and spoons

I am from the garden

it contains a lavender smell

i am from the roots

the oak tree whose long

gone limbs i remember

as if they were my own


I'm from thanksgiving and

family reunions from brothers

and sisters i m from struggling and grinding

and from hustling, im from hustle and

determination and don't count your

eggs before they hatch, im from

downtown im from new Orleans and

9th ward chicken and craw fish


from always fighting

with family and always the aggressor

tense

pictures

others had beds

no bed to sleep in
