I come from
I come from welcoming communities
I come from gratified walls,middle school mana
respect, excellence and whanautanga.
Ringing bells and singing church,
Overtime workers on minimum wages.
I come from high school drop-outs, corned beef lovers and taro eaters
Scattered dreams and broken hearts
Window washers trying to get some money
Quiet streets and nature loving freaks
I come from a place where setting goals for the future is vital, being prepared for anything and everything. I come from dark sacred nights and moon shining bright (O holy night), Alleyway rats and runaway cats, Sunday dinners at 1 o'clock.I come from grown men in comfortable oversized couches. Screaming at the television while watching sports.
