I was raised by the biggest Castel opposite my old windows. 

I am from Taiz, the sound of motorcycles in the neighborhood. 

I am a piece of Arab origin. 

I was raised by historical country.

I am from the sound of video games coming from my nephew’s room each morning,

The smell of bent al Sahn made with flour, butter, and honey.

I was raised by a dad’s advice who made my morning greater. 

I am from the best morning with beautiful sunshine. 

I was raised by five minutes wasting my free time writing.

I am made of ambition and pride, 

I am made of sharing my opinion,

I am made of sharing my culture, 

I am made of sharing my ideas. 

I was raised by living together 

With my brother’s family, and my parents. 

I am from a family that hang out together. 

I am made of “try to do something before going to college, like Youtuber, programs, sports teams…” 

I was raised by the Sunset over the Island

I am from a view of Manhattan in the West

I am made of Verrazano Bridge view in the East

I was raised by hearing the ocean waves, and birds 

I was raised by fishing and reading a book, for passing my time there

I am made of my brothers who are the most coming with me

I am made of my older siblings’ advice

I was raised by teaching me what I should have done to my life

I am made of learning from their stories that taught me a lot of advice

I am made of sharing my obstacles to the other as advice. 
What I am made of?

    Dear Ishak:
    I am inspired by your poem, “What I am made of,” because it shows so many memorable moments. your poem is so toughing because you quoted so many things that everybody goes through every day
    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I am made of sharing my opinion,” I think this is an interesting quote that shows how you like speaking your mind in your own way because it helps others know you understand.
    Your poem reminds me of a story I read when I was little. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I enjoyed it.
