I am made of gardening with my grandparents in their small town in Dominican Republic

I am made of  being the first to get up out of my family

I am made of getting us to a new country  in 2nd grade without knowing no one 7 years ago And Graduating middle school in 5th grade.

I am made of All the jokes we made about the old days on family meetings.

I am made of a beautiful bridge with shiny  light at night.

I am made of not trusting “friends”

I am made of a plan that comes up good when you don’t tell anyone.

I like the organization and repetition in the poem. You do a good job with rhyme and expressing yourself. I like the way all of the unique things in your life are expressed. The only thing I would say to improve is to use better word choice.
