From the Friday night lights and the early morning practices. From victories and defeats.
by Maynor Galletan
I come from a place of darkness.
South Central is filled with violence, drugs and countless illegal activities
Where gangs recruit the young and cut their lives short.
From a momma who’s devoted her life to her children.
Who attempts to shield them from the dangers of the community.
From a father whose ambitions cost him the joy of watching his kids grow up.
I come from the blue and white my brothers wear with pride
From the Friday night lights and the early morning practices
From victories and defeats.
I come from multiple families
One I was born into, and another I chose to join.
I come from those who don’t give up no matter the challenge.
I come from those who are relentless.
