I am from mango trees

From ant bites and gold jewelry 

I am from the central american floods 

annoying booming laughter and giving lack of attention 

I am from hot 90 degree weather 

To beaming suns and humid rains 

Im from bathing babies in cologne and spanish speaking 

From Yessenia Rodriguez and Kyara alvarado 

From yelling and irritation 

im from the saying passed down from the older generation 

and passed on stories 

From christianity and monotheism 

Im from Tracey Ca, Nicaragua and Brazil, beans and rice 

From my 104 year old great grandmother 

from  uncle that died from cancer  

By Lunara Vasconcelos 

In this assignment we were asked to write a pom about what we are about and everything around us. For my poem I wrote about what  i like where i come from and my family. When other people read this poem i hope that they give positive feedback so i can make my poem better
