I am from... racist neighbors
I am from chicken and rice
I am from “don’t touch my playstation you bum”
I am from “make sure the house clean by the time we get home”
I am from the smell of Clorox
I am from the park across the street
I am from a dad that constantly works overtime
I am from going to my grandma’s house on Saturday
I am from “bro i’m bouta dropkick you”
I am from PS.261
I am from MS.88
But now i’m from harvest collegiate
Now you know where i’m from.... where are you from?
