My Life

I am from fog in the morning,
and roses as red as fire.

I am from trees as green as a witch.

I am from a car fixing shop next door,
also from crossing the leafy neighborhood.

I am from my mom rushing me in the morning.

I am from a cactus two blocks away that is as spiky as a porcupine.

I am from a dad that takes me to San Jose every Christmas,
also, a dad that tells me to never give up.

I am from jalapeño bagels and Mexico.

I am from my favorite ice cream, grasshopper pie.

I am a branch from my family tree.
