*MY MEXICAN PRIDE*


Roses are red
Mexicans are brown
thats my race
so don't put it down! !

My Mexican pride
I will not hide
My Mexican race
I will not disgrace

My Mexican blood
flows hot & true
My Mexican peeps
I will stand by you

thru thick & thin
till the day we die
Our Mexican flags

Always stands high
I yell this poem
Louder than all the rest.
cuz every one knows
Mexicans ARE THE BEST! ! !

Mexican Pride in my mind
MEXICAN BLOOD is my kind
So step aside and let me through
Cuz its all about the Mexican crew
Life sucks and then you die
but if your Mexican
You die with pride! ! ! !

    i was trying to think up a kick a_s present for my best friend. She's a latino and it's her sweet 16. unfortunately i couldnt make it to her quinceanera last year, so i wanted to make her a really cool gift this year. i'm kind of short on money but i have these boxes that are all different shapes and colors that i was going to paint and decorate. i figured she could put her stuff from her trips to mexico in them. but i needed ideas for what to paint on it.and then i found your poem.she totally completely loved the gift! your poem was her favorite part. thank you so much!

In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
