For the Summer Soccer Scholars‘ Cultural Storytelling class last summer, I wrote the following poem:
My eyes are black.
When they touch the sun they turn green, which reminds me of the last thing she said to me.
I love you.
When my mom went somewhere, she took care of me.
She went to Mexico for a week and a half.
And then she died.
She died so she reminds me of my eyes.
