I am from hurt

from hate and love

I am from carelessness

and judgement

I am from a heart

whose heart beats with mine

I am from a mother and a father

from Michele and Jermaine

I am from yelling and crying

and from leaving

from begging

I am from court dates

I am from Joyce and Freda

from separation and depression

from death

and from bills

Hurt kept us together

I am from those moments  

I am from hurt
