I am from a home of love,
from beautiful gardens that we have
I am from the warmth and coziness
of a beautiful country.
I am from roses and tulips
whose dark burgundy hair and delicate kisses
Decorate the neighborhoods.
I am from these colors and tenderness,
from Dinora and Zilola
I am from jokes and kindness
and from memories.
I am from supporting the people I am close to,
I am from Rano and Nodira
from hot dogs and shakarop
and from being successful,
Dreaming and enjoying
I am from these moments.
I am from this home of love.Tags: New York City Writing Project's 2018 ELLs Academy
