I am From
I’m from poverty.
I am from a place where no one cared.
I’m from a 5-year-old boy,
Who had no family.
I am from a boy who had no place to call home.
I’m from a childhood who no one cared about.
I am from a lost and lonely past.
I am from dark and depressing thoughts.
I am the kid that had suicidal thoughts.
I am a boy who gave up home of finding a family,
Who gave up on living,
To see the next day.
I am the boy who everyone told it was my fault,
That I was taken away from my family.
I am the child who needed love and comfort,
That no one gave.
I am the kid that needed to be shown,
How to be a proper Gentleman.
A kid that was a nobody.
A boy who was born with nothing.
That no one can relate to.
The kid who had nothing but bad memories.
I am that child whom two parents wanted to take in,
When no one else did.
I am that child who found a new purpose in life,
When he had none.
I am from two dads that showed me love for the first time.
I am that boy who get everything that he dreamed of in a family.
I am from a child who chose to live,
Instead of laying down and giving up.
I am from a family who taught me the motto,
“We don’t judge.”
I am the guy who got adopted,
When everyone else said, “I am UNADOPTABLE.”
I am a child who is still fighting, to right the wrongs
That no child should go through like I did.
I am loved by two dads that went through hell and back for me.
I am Zach Milner, the boy who chose not to go around roadblocks
But to destroy them,
So they couldn’t pop up again.
I am Zach Milner, and this is my childhood.
