2: Where I'm From | I am from dry sand, from Gold and oil. I am from small houses full of people, with no roof. I am from the Somali cactus and, the damal plant grown in the northern part of Somalia. I am from big parties and funny gossip, from aunts and uncles and cousins. I am from the loud talkers and big eaters. From never lie and eat all your vegetables.
3: I am from mosques and the Hajj in the religion Islam. I'm from Atlanta, Georgia and Borama, Somalia, and rice and samosa. From the leadership of my great grandfather, the stories of my dad’s old days, and the bravery of my mom during civil war. I am from Montego Bay, Jamica, and the sea shells in my mom’s room.
4: Self REspect Poem | Sometimes I get sleep and, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I play soccer and, sometimes I won’t. Sometimes I Depend on my parents, I might even need help once in a while. It really just depends on how you feel. I’m not (the average) person but I can get a laugh. And I ain’t the funniest person around. But I learned from most of my mistakes Because I am not perfect.
5: I’m not the only one who messes up once in a while. My worth is not determined by the way I act. No matter what I will try my best, I will always be who I am.
6: My Mother's Kitchen | Sister-Hey mom! What’s for dinner? Is it eggs and soup with milk and butter? Green eggs and ham, or oven cooked chicken from the meat cutter. Mom-No dear it’s nothing like that! Just a little something to make you fat. A cheese burger with a side of fries like no other. One for you and one for your brother. Better eat it before it gets cold because it was probably cooked 24 hours ago. Sister-Yay! You bought us food! Is that a dead thing in it, or is it just the way fast food is viewed. AHH! It’s a dead rat under the bun! Look at its eyes, look at the rotten crums!
7: Sister I’m calling the restaurant right now to get my refund. Hello! My daughter is completely stunned. At the quality of your food. So fix it now, or I will be forced to sue? My daughter just ran upstairs now, crying “I want food!” (Mom) HAHA! Did you see her run! Good idea Khadar that was really fun. That should’ve taught her a lesson. That home cooked food with salad dressing. Is better than fast food any day or anytime.
