Where I’m From
I am from video games
From Playstation and Xbox
I am from a cold household
and siblings
I am from the tree in the backyard
Whose branches grew as I did
I am from fights and bruises
from Sharif and Ifthikar
I am from 2 languages and 2 cultures
and from 2 countries
from drama
I am from sneaking out with my brother
I am from Amar and Naima
from rice and curry
From immigration
and from leaving home
Leaving in the middle of the night to see a friend
I am from those moments
I am from leaving home
