I am from a place where fathers run away from supporting their daughters.
A place where mothers die and leave their daughters with ‘family’.
Family that later become enemies.
I’m from a place where your siblings turn against you and leave you alone.
Where people smile in front of you but say bad things behind your back about you.
I’m from a place where you have to take care of yourself at a young age.
A place where life forces you to be strong.
I’m from a place that is inside me.
That place is my life.
That’s where I’m from.
