Where I'm From - Poem by Kathy light
Where I'm from we have music
That will use up all your energy.
We have parties every single day,
You can still hear it when you leave.
Where I'm from you will need to take a
dance class in order to pass.
You will have to get a job as young as the age
Of 10, in order to help your parents pay the bills.
Where I'm from, it's colorful and beautiful.
We always celebrate Cinco De Mayo.
We are festive and bring La Dia de los Muertos
To life, and do it confidently.
Where I'm from people steal and the police do nothing.
You can do anything and be home free.
In the afternoon you will see animals get hit by
Their owners, and those animals will cry for help.
You will see Protests, fights and cold blood murder.
What can you do? ....
Where I'm from there's gangs you don't want to mess with.
Parents have to stay up with gun in hand, to make sure that their kids are safe.
Because those gangs break in, steal and kill.
Then you hear gunshots
And everything goes silent, the scariest sound ever.
