“WHERE YOU FROM”

“Where you from”

Standing on the street corner

Group of men with him

All they ask

Where you from?

 

Drinking beers

Smoking cigarettes

Not a care for themselves or others

Asking everyone who passes them

Where you from?

 

Doesn’t matter what you look like

Doesn’t matter who’s with you

All they care about

Where you from?

 

I hope my son

Doesn’t turn into the one

Who asks

Where you from?

 

Teach them to do better

Go on to higher education

Instead of

Where you from

Ask the others

Where are you going after graduation?
