I am from shoes

from running shoes and 5" heels

I am from the mirror on the wall

shiny, spotless, and reflective

it looked

I am from roses

the white roses

standing strong and beautifully

 

I am from dancing and loud speakers

from the Asencio to Perez and everyone in between

I am from the protectiveness of family

and the pushing to be something in life

from not giving your trust away

I'm from the Christianity

the Baptist, the Seventh-day Adventist, and Pentecostal

 

I'm from Brooklyn, Miami, Charlotte but mainly Dominican Republic

the platanos con salami y queso frito and the habichuela con dulce

from the single mother whose decisions ensure the safety of her children

from the aunts who help each nephew and niece

by taking and raising a nephew as her own, no questions asked

 

The box with a blue and green suitcase

with memories in pictures and documents

I am from the motivated and determined

strong mother who gives

all she has
