I am

I am the sum of my parents

Divide by our income

Multiplied by debt

That equals regret


I am the class nerd

Who hangs on every word

That loves school

And is marginally uncool


I am the one who wants to get an education

But is the culmination of procrastination

The one that chose long nights and little sleep

So as to have his grades and life to keep


I am an urban child

Who was raised by those born wild

I am a part of the new generation

Making the most out of this ever changing nation


Who am I?

What am I?

I am what I make of myself

I am a part of the future.

My family
