    Where I’m from By: Vachon Raye
    I come from a family that on Sunday is the best day to eat food and watch football
    From a neighborhood where it never stops
    From pancake making, cupcake baking and pork chop frying family
    From Soul food Sundays
    From football Sunday when church lets out
    From a church that you don’t know when you get out

    I’m from 2002 no Wi-Fi, 2013 always need Wi-Fi
    From bipolar, good to bad to mad then glad
    From sleep when bored or sleep whenever
    From a trap that even the kids are on there hustle

    I’m from Florida palm trees to Georgia peaches
    From Florida sun to Detroit snow
    From living large from barely living at all

    Now That’s Where I’m From

    Where I’m From
    I’m from summer breeze and Daisy Spring’s
    I’m from turkey Dinners and Award Winners
    I’m From a Struggle with money and issues with Bills
    The life of the Ghetto with dope boys on every corner
    The hood where all you hear is rap music and a little losing
    Where I’m from make me want something better.
    Where I’m from is not who I am
    The place I’m from has really given me a focus on having a wonderful outcome.
    That’s where I’m from!

    Where I’m From

    I am from hot chips and Fuze drinks,
    I am from hard heads and soft butts and looking crazy sometimes.
    From dope dealers to women selling their bodies.
    I am from crying so the pain can go away.
    I am from a mother who tries her best every day.
    That’s where I’m from.
    I am from crazy uncles and lost kids.
    From not knowing my real father and having another man take real good care of me.
    I am from laughs and hugs.
    I am from a smart family and a hard working father.
    I am from sisters getting raped and exposing themselves on tape.
    That’s where I’m from.

    I am from a place where the thanksgiving dinner is always good. And Christmas Eve and day is filled with joy.
    I am from a place where we pray every night to be safe and ok.
    I am from a place where we eat a good Sunday dinner within my home wake up to see a bright new day and pray for another.
    I am from a place where even if you’re mad still smile.
    I am from a place where I stay with my great grandmother while my mother works to take care of me.
    I am from a place where I play video games and eat and snack or two while playing.
    I am from a place where I always have a good heart for my mother even if we argue sometimes.

    Where I am From

    I am from what I like to call a place of arms opened, hugs, and smiling faces.
    From expressing my feelings, and feeling good doing it.
    I am from standing out and, walking tall, not afraid to be me being different is okay.
    I am from a family, who is talented and smart.
    I come from hard work pays off
    because if you try you can never go wrong,
    because giving up is never an option.
    Believing is the key.
    I say, go big or go home. I’m from you can do anything
    From never let anybody say that you cannot do something.
    I’m from know hardest working people
    They try and they never give up.
    Where I come from being popular doesn’t matter
    What matters most is how much you know.
    No one can take that away from you.
    And this is where I am from

    I’m from going to the candy lady and buying freeze cups
    I’m from long flowing hair and positive compliments on how I look
    I’m from a lawyer and someone who takes care of us
    I’m from whatever goes on in this house stays in house
    I’m from yelling and screaming about his or her house being clean
    I’m from kids parties and grown up parties in the room while they are playing spades
    I’m from friends and family calling out “Nookie”
    I’m from going shopping every month and people telling me never give up
