    Where I'm from it's hard to grow up in these streets
    ...
    for this new start.
    Katy Boucher
    I'm from a struggling single parent
    who's strong and independent.
    Who raised my brothers and I
    the best possible way a single
    mother can and with what she had.
    Growing up she showed us how to
    survive and how not to let the
    negative around us influence us in
    any way. She showered us with
    love, even when she was being
    tough when enforcing the house rules.
    I am from a strong-minded woman
    hard-working and so full of life.
    I am who I am today because
    of the life lessons she taught me.
    I am from an independent woman.
    Jackie Rodriguez
    I am from sports that I watch every day.
    I am from the rakes that I use to make money.
    I am from the sayings my great-grandmother tells me.
    I am from the trash laying in the Hartford streets.
    I am from hard work and pride passed down from generation to generation.
    I am from the opposite of what people think of me.
    I am from Jordon.
    Jordon Higginbotham
    I am from where arroz y habichuelas serves as the main dish
    you add aguacate, carne guisa, ensalada and even some fish.
    I am from where swinging on an hamaca tied to trees
    is the best way to chill and catch some z's.
    I am from those days where if you misbehaved your abuela came out
    and the next thing you'd be doing is rubbing your ass while you shout.
    I am from afternoons at school when I'd go to the corner store
    icee's, papito y una tripleta was better than lunch you didn't need change
    cause that's what candy was for.
    I am from being a female and young meant responsibilities at home,
    no matter how mad you'd get with your elders you had to watch your tone.
    I am from those days where Hispanic music would be loud,
    family together and cook-outs was the best, laughter and talking was the sound.
    I am from where a rubber snake meant leaving a mark
    but overall love was always there without a doubt.
    Wendy Gonzalez
    Where I'm From
    a strong wild eating
    place, where grandma
    cooks and works
    all day from
    grown to young
    in the fields
    all day never
    slacking nor complaining
    neither day, eating
    hogs and pigs
    in the wild
    where we stay
    from barns to
    fields and castles
    riding horses and
    cows all day
    Craig Byrd
    I am from the projects where
    you hear the sirens from
    the cop cruisers and ambulance every night.
    I am from the 5 bedroom apartment
    stuffed with 11 kids, my mom
    and dad. Where my mother slaves in the
    kitchen all day and my dad bought
    home the bacon.
    I am from a public high school where
    you get searched and wanded with
    metal detectors for our safety.
    I am from a family who loves
    and cares for one another and are
    happy considering where I'm from
    Lisette Quintana
    I am from the Hood
    Northend of Hartford
    where there's drug dealers,
    killer and Hood rats.
    I am from the hood
    where every day you wonder
    what is going to happen;
    you have your good days and
    you have some really bad days
    where you hear screaming
    sometimes people crying.
    I am from the Hood where
    you get shown so much love
    from people out in the streets
    more than what get shown
    from your own family.
    I am from the Hood
    the Northend of Hartford,
    but even though you have your
    drug dealers and your killers
    and your Hood rats
    it feels like it's home
    because no matter what happens
    everyone gets together
    and shares laughter
    and emotions
    and friendship.
    I am from the Hood
    and at times I hate it
    but there's times when
    I love it s o much.
    It can be scary at some times
    just thinking about people
    getting shot or beat up
    but all in the end
    it's home for most and
    we make the best out of it.
    I am from Hartford, my
    hometown and I'm loving it
    and growing from it!

    these streets
    you got to watch for your enemy, police and a snitch.
    You gotta fight for your respect and live with no regrets,
    ...
    where my home is safe
    Kyle Milton
    I AM
    I am from Addiction
    I am from Hurtful Affliction
    I am from pseudo smiles
    I am from Revolution
    I am from a phoenix, burning
    Eternal, Pure of Heart
    I am from a fairy tale,
    I am trying to make something real
    I am hoping for you to make me feel
    I am the ever-changing leaves
    of the maple trees
    I am a warm soft Breeze
    Floating by his heart
    I am so grateful
    for this new start.

    "Where I'm From" Poetry
    Where I'm from it's hard to grow up in these streets
    you got to watch for your enemy, police and a snitch.
    You gotta fight for your respect and live with no regrets,
    listen to your parents or get whooped til there's blood on your flesh.
    Look out for family cause those are your friends
    and only have acquaintances cause they'll diss you in a sec.
    Where I'm from you gotta hustle to survive
    cause minimum wage is overtime in a 9 to 5.
    Where I'm from if you don't take Education seriously you'll be left behind
    and result to crimes and violence, death or life behind bars
    Christian Calderon
    I am from Coca Cola being a substitute for formula
    a belt being a weapon to keep you from forgetting
    Parents that are rarely home, a grandmother keeping
    away the feeling of being alone
    Fitting 8 people in a car that seats 5
    Economy class, tickets, summers under a Caribbean sun
    Making and breaking even is where I'm from
    I am from driving south of the border
    learning how to hold my breath under water
    Rice, beans, and any meat we could buy
    Fears of drowning when the flood waters got high
    Being an only child till the age of 8
    Arnando Salcedo
    I am from good family, always loving
    even after the bad things that happen.
    I am from rice and beans being cooked
    and the usual laughters.
    I am from playing Xbox from doing good
    to the occasional yelling at the same because
    it's fake...
    Joseph Ortega
    Where I'm from
    a sweet and peaceful
    home where my
    room is never a place
    so warm and cozy
    I eat and sleep there
    never missing work
    never missing a peak
    where my home is safe
    Kyle Milton
