I am From

by PrincessReema

I am from where they be hatin' and not appreciatin'.
Kids running in the streets doing things they know they shouldn't be doing.
I hear cars blasting music just doing that to show off their cars.
I am from where everyone is competing seeing whose stuff is better.
I'm from where you look at the end of the corner and see a liquor store.
I see everyone wearing name brand things just to be flashy.
I see everyone on their cell phones walking down the street.

Princess Reema-
THis poem really spoke to me. It made me think about how some of my friends live. It is really interesting to see what other peoples lives are like too

Ooh, I just started reading Twilight and now I get the reference, Edward Cullen. I love your literary allusion!
