I am from a family of females,
who work without worries, to support their family.
I am from a motivated mother,
who made a living on her own.
I am from a grandmother,
who took time to tender.

I learned to work,
to pay attention in school and to do my homework.
I learned to work,
to never stand around in the gym.
I learned to work,
to pick up shifts as long as twelve hours.

I learned to celebrate,
to appreciate things in life.
I learned to celebrate,
with friends and family, that fulfil my faith.
I learned to celebrate,
with a goodwill to give back, to care.

I learned to relax,
to take my time, to put in value to things I care.
I learned to relax,
to hike the hills, and enjoy the challenge of continuing, despite the sore shins.
I learned to relax,
to take naps in the sunlight.

I am from a family of love,
where I am loved by more than humans.
I am from a family of love,
where I have learned to become a better person.
I am from a family of love,
where love is all one needs.
