2: I am from Gameboys, from the Gameboy Advance and Nintendo GameCube. I am from the quiet house on Lehigh Street. I am from the Green, the blooming flowers. I am from Family Reunions and intelligence from Gary Lindsey and Patricia Lindsey and Tamika Lindsey. I am from the Rambunctiousness and hospitality. From embracing the fact I am a nerd and to relax. I am from the semi-representation of religion. I'm from Ypsilanti, Michigan of the Lindsey family, Fried chicken and peach cobbler. From my studious mother skipping a grade and receiving Straight A’s, the pain of being a single mother, and constant trips to travel the country. I am from Ypsilanti, Michigan. | Where I'm From

3: " being deeply loved by someone gives you strength; loving someone deeply gives you courage." - loa tzu | Sometimes I read, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I study, sometimes I won’t. Depends on the attitude, I might even start a feud It really just depends on effort. I’m not (the average) Nerd. And I ain’t arrogant. But I learned how to appreciate my talents Because I am impressive. I’m not stuck up. My worth is not determined by book knowledge. No matter what others say and do, I will always be impressive. | Self Respect Poem

4: Approached with a doorway, she is curious However, seeing the mess makes her furious Dirty dishes and dead fish She can count with thousands of hands how many wishes she can't wish. Oh the horror of the gigantic mess made Counter stained with drops of sprite, pepsi, and lemonade Originally tasty spinach was present, But the not so rich stench is now omnipresent With many chores to be done Comes many people who are willing to escape or run Running hiding will do no good When she knows where you ought to go in the neighborhood | M Y M o t h e r 's K i t c h e n

5: M Y M o t h e r 's K i t c h e n | So she put on her shoes and walked out the door And thought to herself in Spanish, “Hace calor” As she walked down the sidewalk, she made a breakthrough She saw the park that was somewhat new She walked valiantly toward the park and saw one particular boy The mother kindly call his name and you work to do troy The boy disdainfully went home and mopped the floor and cleaned the dishes Got rid of all the stains and all of the dead fishes
