Where I'm FromI’m from obnoxiously neat pink bedrooms,
Pink dresses, pink shoes, and pink bows.
I am from Barbie’s and baby dolls,
Baby dolls with those hard plastic feet.
I am from Carrie and Pedro, but not Pedro,
Now Rob, who should be real.
I’m from Rob, who though not blood, is closest,
From Carrie, who is now gone too.
I’m from snow and White Oaks,
Snow; blistering cold, but soft, fluffy, white.
I am from places with buildings,
Towering buildings twenty stories tall.
I’m from bittersweet gingerbread houses,
And red icing, which makes me vomit.
I am from German chocolate cake every year,
And church every Sunday, although not now.
I am from secret lines of eyeliner,
Then real ones when I got my own.
I’m from black clothes, black hair, and black shoes,
Now from the Rastafarians, red, yellow, and green.
I am from the earth, not the moon.
I am from the fluffy black cat, Hushpuppy,
And from the fluffy white dog, Findy.
I’m from numerous, numerous fish,
In My Head, Zombies.Apprehension
Gyrating in the mind.
Killing of the
Makes the poem
Only the best of
Reside in the minds and
Stay in the hearts, in
The bodies of the broken.
Underlying the words are
Very much important
Windows to the soul.
Your severed emotions, despite your
Where I Began.So far gone
So fucking gone
Lost like a treasure
Dead at the core
Hope that someone can find it
Before it's lost at sea
So far apart
Further away than you
And the promise land
Navigate to the fifth dimension
Before you're damned to ours
So far down
Sinking like your heart
Deep in your chest
Pray that someone can catch it
Before it's lost
So far gone
So fucking gone
Gone like your soul
Since you lost your way
Follow down that path you're on
So that you can be free.
What a nice day in the park.What a nice day in the park!
Some kids trading cards!
But they aren't cards, it's drugs.
A nice man sitting with his kids!
But they aren't his kids.
A few teenagers messing around with Nerf guns!
But they're real guns.
A man going for a jog!
But it's away from the police.
Some squirrels playing!
But they're rabid and fighting for food.
A nice group of friends!
But their plotting a robbery.
A lady feeding birds!
But the bread contains rat poison.
A man and his wife holding hands!
But her boyfriend is at work.
A woman going swimming!
But that's more clothes than she wears to work.
Yes, what a nice day in the park!
