Favorite Quote:
"you never really understand a person until you consider his point of view- until you climb into his skin and walk around in it" - To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee

My family resembles a house.
Mom is the support beams,
Always there when we need her.
Alivya is the nails,
Keeping us together.
Lonnie is the floor,
Letting people walk all over him.
Glenn is the roof,
Protecting us and keeping us out of Trouble.
I am the locked door,
Never letting anyone in.
Anthony is the key,
Helping me open up to him.

I wrote this poem because it was a good way to express my family
