I Am From

Strawberry farmers and orange groves, trailer parks and country roads. Hurricanes, tornadoes and tropical storms. I am from drunks and deadbeats, illiterates and dropouts, single mothers and pill poppers. Beaters, screamers and hell raisers. Bastards and cast-offs. I am from too many children and not enough money.

I am also from freedom fighters and war survivors. From good brains (but few prospects). I am from hard workers and strong women. From oceans and rivers and sandy soil. I am from love pure and young. I am from the sun.

But this is just the half I know.
