"Where I'm From" poem
At Her Majesty's Request: An African Princess in Victorian England, Walter Dean Myers

I am from schoolyards and best friends
From seasickness and thin air.
I am from waves and anguish
From ocean to land.
I am from queens and palaces
From royalty and wealth.
I am from going back and making friends
From learning and from Africa.
I am from wealth and happiness
From marriage and home.
I am from immigration.
