Where We Are From

I come from a place where I was safe, now I’m being chased.
I am from secrets and huge lies,
from chicken nuggets and small fries.
From old Nintendo and Super Mario Brothers.
I am from the 17th state.
From the streets, where the dope dealers meet,
grinding hard just to eat.
I am from Earth where people sin.
From a home where family used to play board games.
And from the east where people make beats.
I am from peace where you listen, then teach.
