I am from the block from  
Jordans to North face    
i am from the park behind my building
With yellow slides to black swings
I am from sirens,delis and plants
I am from rice and beans
From maduros to tostones
I am from the nosey but caring
I am from ‘’your gonna be living off the government
If you don’t get it together’’
I am from crosses and jesus being our savior
I am from the bronx
I am from the burnt pictures of my family burned in my aunt’s old house
I am from the moments that i thought i wouldn’t succeed but i did
