If I said I was from a New York borough
where there’s light in the day and night,
would you know where I’m from?
It’s best at night when the sky is dark but the city is still shining bright.

Where I’m from, I can play video games with no one to bother me
The peace and quiet of the night
Just me, alone in the dark.

Where I’m from, I can play table tennis at school
At night all of the kids are gone
It’s just me and the team

Where I’m from, I can spend time with family
At night we can spend time together
Have fun together
Be a happy group of people.

Where i’m from, I can feel alone
At night it’s just me
Nobody else
Just me in darkness.

Where I’m from I can waste time
At night I should be asleep
But I don’t
I stay up because I don’t want to waste time sleeping
Yet I just sit
Wasting time.

    Hey, Oliver. I stumbled across your post and was compelled to read it by the title. I really like what you wrote and if your title was set in place seriously, I encourage you to keep working until you are more confident in your work. I would love to hear more about where you are from in the future!
