Just because I'm Latino

Doesn’t mean I’m a tamale

Doesn’t mean I’m ghetto
And doesn’t mean I’m poor
Just because I’m a teenager
Doesn’t mean I can’t do stuff
Doesn’t mean I’m lame
Doesn’t mean that I am mean
Just because I hate school
Doesn’t mean I like it
Doesn’t mean I don’t get bored
Doesn’t mean that I can’t play outside
Just because I am a boy
What is a teenager?
Why cant they do stuff that grown ups do?
Am I Asian, Arabian, black? What am I?
But I am what I am!!!
