I Am From PoemWritten and illustrated Azalia Romero
I am from clothes and eatingFrom Urban Outfitters and Trader Joes.
You better not make a mess!!!!
I am from the apartment by the freeway, small, cozy, and calm. I am from roses in front of my apartmentthat are red and white, small, and smell fresh.
I'm from having a huge family get together every summer and being double jointed on elbows. From Mayte and Pierre, I'm from the having family over every weekend and going to the beach.
From "You better not make a mess" and "be careful" I'm from going with my grandma every winter and making tamales on Christmas. I'm from Mexicali from carne asada and seveche .
From the being really good at math and drawingThe being very decorative. From a box in my room filled with albums and pictures from the past, and remembering the past, all the good times, and all of the special moments.
