I am from the latin dishes that bring people together
to dishes that break families apart like who gets the last plate  

I am from the hood where everyone knows everyone
From people who like each other to people who don’t

I am from spanish  music blasting in the summer
at parties lasting from 8  to 4am

I am from a hispanic family arguing all the time
To getting together to love one another at the end of the day

I am from the hood you think is bad
But really it just brings all of us together

I am from the where the you your from
