Am from here!

How many times would I tell you 

That I am from here? 


My father was the Mayor 

Of this city, 

Respected 

And loved by his people; 

Worshiped like a god 

Before he slept, never to wake up again! 


That huge gray mansion 

Was ours. 

My room was a boycott to the main mansion 

Painted red and black 

With a photograph 

Of us - me, my mother and him 

Fixed on the wall 

Before it was sold by his wife. 


My mother was the first wife 

But his second wife 

Was the legitimate wife, 


You know the system... 

I am not a lawyer. 


But how many times would I tell you 

That I am from here? 


From this very city.
