I am from curry chicken so hot,
You better drink a gallon of water,
Just to breathe again.
A city so busy,
You can hear the cars and trucks,
Honking and passing their way by.
I am from such a overprotective mother,
Like a shadow behind me,
I turn around, I see her there,
I jump, I fall, She catches me,
No separation there.
I am from a group of friends so loud,
Not even a loud siren can drown them out,
But they also are always there for me,
I cry, they cry with me,
They are a part of who I am.
I am from books so much they can build a fort,
Thousands of stories with new places to go,
They make me cry, they make me cheer,
To the stories that keep me occupied for days,
That put me in their world.
I am from food so spicy,
You feel as if no milk can help it,
With hundreds of spices,
That beautifully blends together,
That makes our taste buds water,
That causes you to eat and eat without withdrawal,
That is the Carribean food that I am from,
The food that connects me, the food that makes me.
That is where I'm from.
