She is from Alabama

She is From Alabama

I am from Alabama

I cook stir fry most of the time

I shop on 280 because that’s the

wealthiest place in the area

we learned how to cook from

Southern Living

for Thanksgiving we eat the food

healthy people hate (cornbread and greens) and stuff

my hair is very curly when it’s wet

most people I play the Play Station with ask if

I live on a farm or make up my weird country accent

I heard all about whites hanging people for no reason blacks are judged for listening to rap music

but I listen to pop

(Adele, Taylor Swift, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, and Selena)
