life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what your gunna get

I am from huge birthday parties with my family,
from cuts and bruises but kisses to make it all better.
I am from summers all over the world and few Christmas’ in Haiti.
I am from timeouts when I misbehave and lollipops when I bring home good grades.
I am from “Barney” and “Sesame Street” that made my childhood interesting.

I am from a loving family with different homes.
I am from Mrs. Try Harder and Mr. Sure Why Not.
I am from a “what happens at home stays at home” saying.
I am from family reunions and fights but resolutions.

I am from vacations and business in Haiti, Dominican Republic, South Korea, Canada, California, Florida, Boston, Chicago and many more to come.
I am from loving to travel by bus, trains, planes, and cars.
I am from “The Pursuit of Happiness” and touching moments watching it with my family.

I am from living life to its greatest.
I am from 15 years and hopefully more on the way.
