Where I'm From
I am from Netflix, from Mexican and American food.
I am from the modern.
I am from the dust, the bluebonnet.
I am from mariachis and sombreros, from Juan and Brenda Guzman.
I am from the truth and sass, from work for what you want and don't let anyone take you down.
I am from strong Christians, Christians that pray and have strong faith.
I am from Galveston, Texas, parents from Allende, Nuevo Leon, from beans and rice.
I am from the hilarious memories to the middle fingers sown at me, and curs words thrown at my family and I.
I am from pictures on the wall to the stories told by our family.
The pain I have caused, compared to none.
The pain I've received, harder than rocks.
Oh what have I done I ask myself.
Wondering how those people felt.
Wanting to fix the pain I caused,
I couldn't bare facing the pain I've caused.
I couldn't undo what was done,
the pain I caused was hard like rocks.
The pain was the truth, the truth
that fake friends and family have caused.
are like friends
they have so many jobs.
From homes and shelters to
animals,to providing shade
and oxygen. So big and
majestic to small and compact.
The greenest of trees

Ode to the teacher, the teacher is the
"Juan and only" the greatest of them all.
The teacher's name is Parween Summers
she is hot like the summer but her heart
is cold like no other. This teacher is the
best of the best, brings out the integrity in
people. She is heartless but truthful,
she isn't anything like other teachers she
teaches better, she makes the best jokes and
she's my teacher. Ms. Summers understands
how teenagers feel how they function, what
to say and how to rephrase problems so it's
clearer to be processed by teenagers.
Ms. Summers madness and craziness bring
great contentment to us all. No other
person has made us feel so joyful to be in
English or in school. Parween Summers is
like a friend but not like the fake ones.
My mom is my love, we have so much fun.
My mom is my earth and my sky.
Memo is my everything, including the sun.
Memo is so cool and fly.
She's the friend I can always go to.
Oh mother how you make me laugh.
She's the one who trusts me ever so.
Mother you receive all my giggles and cries.
You even receive my madness and sadness.
I'm sorry for the fights and stupidness.
We've had so much happiness.
You always show my smartness.
From ignoring you.
To loving you.
