Where I'm From

January 11, 2012
I am from bubble baths
From bracelet and nicknacks

I am from the ghetto
From the dead bush
Who's lifeless branches
Still hold leaves

I am from big Thanksgiving dinners
And beautiful brown eyes
From Wanda and David

I am from gossip and loud talking
From less hitting and more bickering

I am from Catholics
Who never go to church
I'm from Dominican immigrants
And Puerto Rican descandants
Pernil and lasagna

I am from El Cucu, the boogeyman
And long, brown hair
I am from project buildings
And I WILL go where ever my success takes me
