I’m from a place that is nowhere
Because it lacks a Google Maps location
A place where all my thoughts positive and negative are like atoms
They begin and end in their foundation
A place which selfishly shows criticism and discrimination

I’m from a place where only I can be
A place with fantasies outside of this world
Where I could find myself being the father of
Blue Ivy with Queen B
Yet at times I see myself seeking approval
Like a bee seeks pollen

I’m from a place that is me
A place which portrays confidence at times
And at others anxiety
A place where the brain cells burn for the comfort of one’s urn

These very thoughts that I live in
Sometimes chain or free me
I am from my mind and thoughts
And they are in return from me
