I am from thanksgiving and Christmas eve,

From whenever you go to grandma’s house you eat

From he’s my dad even though he’s not my father

I am from the south

Not heavy accent south, but biscuits with gravy south

The big red house south

The 300 degree weather south

I come from Nightmares that will one day be reality

From imma smile even though i wanna cry

From i’m starting to expect bad news

From ‘It’s okay,because i’ll soon forgot–i hope”

I am from Naadira Roberts

My mom

My inspiration

The reason i try in school

I am from a Goldfish alive and healthy

Because of 30 dollar medicine

I’m from my sisters future pet hamster
