Where I am From

Location

I am 18 years old and I fully understand that the world is so cold.

I am 18 years old with a story that is not yet told.

I am 18 years old and I've seen a lot of things.

I am 18 years old and have a story people wouldn't believe.

I am 18 years old and I've watched people shut their eyes to facts.

I am 18 years old and I see the resentment in their eyes to prove the fact.

I am 18 years old and I disprove statistics.

I am 18 years old and will not be another poverty stricken victim.
