FC: Poetry Mix-book By Darrell Enriquez | March 29, 2012 Period 5-6

1: Table of Contents 1. My Mother's Kitchen 2. Self Worth 3. LA Poem 4. Where I am From

3: My mother’s kitchen is her holy domain From the knives and refrigerator to the toaster with that stain When my mother steps into her kitchen she’s a different woman Her happiness lies in her tools, even the opener of a can Her oven is heavenly with its blazing hot features With its settings on high it can cook all kinds of creatures She must have gotten her talent from her deceased mother But my mother knows that her soul dwells inside her The smell of her cooking could lure any person Even my sister rushed in from in the middle of mowing the lawn My mother is almighty in her sacred kitchen If her food was rated she’d easily get a ten

5: Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I cry, sometimes I won’t. Depending on my mood, I might even scream. It really just depends on what’s happening around me. I’m not (the average) mood swinging, bipolar kid. And I ain’t some high class spoiled brat who gets what he wants. But I learned to appreciate the things I’ve been given Because I am smart enough to know it won’t always be there I’m not going to lose the principles I’ve gained through living My worth is not determined by my living status No matter what I’ll always keep the things dear to me I will always be proud of how I’ve raised myself

7: Language arts makes dreams come true From simple writing on a piece of paper to publishing a book Whether how insignificant your piece of writing may be always make sure you grammar is perfect you thoroughly express your feelings through a pencil but communication is always better if your punctuation is correct Whether you like it or not Language arts is certainly the most interesting kind of art An art where your audience can critique all they want but as long as you're satisfied with you work it will always be perfect

9: I am from DVD’s, from Coca-Cola and Popcorn. I am from the sweet pungent smell of ripe fruits that I dine near I am from the brown leaves, the withered grass I am from Christmas with all my cousins and Thanksgiving with a pig for a turkey (family trait), from Jose and Dory and Enriquez. I am from screaming through traffic and laughing about something that isn’t funny in the slightest. From Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. I am from a cross in every room of the house and being blessed by its presence I'm from the Philippines, noodles and rice. From the bittersweet victory my brother experienced by spraining his ankle to make the winning goal during his only season of soccer, the laziness we gained from never having to try in school and the heavy accents my parents share I am from the top shelf where our portrait is located next to the candles that are lit when the power goes out, or when we’re feeling natural and distant from technology, my smiling face that was only showed through my ignorant childhood and the only truly happy moments of my life
