I am from Oakland, CA where people get shot and killed.
I am from “who cares” and selfish. When most of the women
think they’re beautiful. I am from a loving home, but most
of the time I feel lonely. I am from a place where I don’t exist.
From a place where people don’t want in their life. I am from
a where people don’t hear me saying “help me”. I am from loneliness
and sadness. Where I only see darkness. I live with my mom, dad, and sister who is now in college.
It’s been different without my sister and we miss her deeply. My parents work day and night to
earn money and for our family. I have faith in us and pray for god.
I am from a place to look to the sky, looking to the future and saying “I’m here.”
I am from Oakland and this is who I am.Tags: Faith
