Why blend in when you were born to stand out!


I am from the unique Cuban blood that runs in my genes
To the russian family that I have never seen
I am from the angry mother
Who left bruises on the confused daughter that loved her
The father that fought for the safety of his daughter
I am from the joy my dog brought me
To taking a piece of my heart when she left me
I am from duplex houses and city lights
The moving van and country nights
I am from becoming a guppy learning how to swim
Into a full grown barracuda dominating the pool
I am from bookworms and fanfic
Where I get lost in a new world and meet new people
I am from scarred knees and sand in my shoes
To once they say set, I’m in beast mode
I am from the ADHD that makes me crazy
And from the friends that can stand me
I am from baby fat
To sick abs
I am from being the Chihuahua
To becoming the outcast German Shepherd
I am from two personalities
The caring side and untamed cries
I am from loving my step-mom
To disliking her when I don’t get my way
I am from an innocent kids mind
To high school jokes over time
I am from endless summer Hibiscuses
And the winter hot chocolate
I am from never leaving the east coast
And dreaming of Paris toast
I am from the embarrassing mistakes of liking several boys
And learning never ever to ask one to a dance
I am from a ball of energy and happiness
Always shining down on the haters because haters gonna hate
I am from the sorrow of losing a beloved swim coach
And the happy but unrealistic thoughts of ever dating him
I am from different yet wonderful
Crazy and calm
I am from all the things that make me me
