"I Am From" by Brandi
I am from combined attributes
of an egg and sperm.
The holders of each spawned
a poor decision.
I am from the child taken @ 2
to live a life with someone new.
I am from the child accepted @ 4
by an unwanting father
and an alcoholic whore.
I am from the teen whose poor
decisions led to a life of hell.
I am from the person trapped inside
Lost in confusion with nowhere to hide.
I am from the life born anew
When all pain and misery will subdue.
I am from where I’m not yet
but I know in the end
everything I’m from doesn’t make
me who I am.
I am from kindness.
I am from love.
I am from freedom I hope to obtain.
