"I COME FROM" by Omega Maddox

I come from color shape texture and size,
I come blinking yawning and and with tired eyes.
I come from sweaty brown brows and pearly white teeth
I come from calm on the surface seathing underneath.
I come from steep green hills and a tiny blue house
and trading blood sweat and tears to feed every mouth.

I come from washing cars, sweeping dry dusty streets
and shining daddy's church shoes for a prayer time meet.
I come from cracking nuts.
I come from getting wood
and coming round a fireplace, coming together to feel good.

I come from riding bikes and and losing my self in the snow.
I come from taking my self everywhere I go.
I come from cuting grass, I come from raking leaves
I come from breathing slow to hear the wind in the trees.
I come from being the best I can be,
I come from "Jump down by JimmyTee!"
I come from Love I come from respect.
I come so far I'm not done yet.

I come from campmeetings and basketball games.
I come from saying the shortest verse,
I come from calling the bathroom 1st.
I come from us I come from we.
I come from knowing you believe in me.

So much I know about where I come from the question is where do I go?
