Coming From Where I'm From

I’ve never been the type of person to
Associate myself with a specific group and claim “pride”
If anything, I find pride in NOT associating myself
With a specific group

But now that I’m older and a bit wiser
I see things a little bit different

Though I still don’t believe in claiming
Pride for any specific group
I now see how beautiful it is
To know about the culture I come from
How beautiful the words are, the colors,
The dress, the customs, the beliefs

It’s extraordinary quite honestly to
Know and feel connected to
A people that once were
And that without them
I could not be

I only grow more curious
Everyday and set out an
Intention to understand
Where I Come From
