Purpose of life
By: Alondra Martinez-V
The Instructor said,
Go home and write a page tonight
And let that page come out of you,
Then it will be true…
I wonder how difficult it is?
Trying to figure out who I am.
I know its hard,but I am 16 years old,
Mexican,and born in the USA. My parents
Migrated here so I could study and be somebody in life.
I am a person who is capable to complete my goals and dreams
And also make my parents proud.
I am a student who strives for success in school
Everyday and work pretty hard.
I am a person who was here for a purpose
I can’t explain. I was brought to the world to show the
People what I am made of. I have the pleasure to be in the USA
And be an example in my race who can’t be in the position I am.
Many parents try to migrate to “El Norte” and bring along with them
A bright future for their sons and daughters. But today those dreams are
So fake to believe . So I stand proud because I am the voice of many
Mexicans and latino people who can’t be here. I am a role model for
Dreamers who can’t dream yet.
It’s not easy to know what is fair for others?
Well me at my age, I am expected to get straight A’s
And not fail any class or else face the consequences.
But I guess it doesn’t matter to people what I feel being left
Out in places I don’t belong neither dare to be. But I hear you all!
Don’t judge others, But first judge yourself .Many others
Hide pains and pasts that can’t be left out in your head.
I am talking to you?
Wait me who?
Hey, who is reading this page!
Well I guess myself knows I am a person who likes to eat,
Write songs,listen to music, and do the math. I like to meet new people
And be a loyal friend, and also understand life a little more clear.
I like hip-pop,and rap from my favorite idols which are Tauren Wells
And Michael Jackson. But what I really like is to sing
And forget about any problems or stress that impacted
Me and my family.
I imagined that being mexican requires not the same thing as you?
But being creamy peach tan skin color is not capable of mixing with white?
The person I am can’t be other races neither people nor culture.
I can’t be mix with people I don’t know because their expression will be
“You don’t belong here?”
As well as many races can’t because we face racism.
Many people insulted and don’t know how these people suffered
To be in the USA.
But their ideas is just all man-made whites?
But just know that since I met you and any other person,they
Became a part of what I am.
That means that I am free to be myself and be a Mexican American.
Well sometimes perhaps many different people might not
Want me to be in this country for many countable reason.
But don’t be fool neither get upset because you choose a person
Who is ready to face society.
I will learn more about the world and from other races too.
But our cultures and family will never be the same for our
Distinct color and appearance . You will be more with free rights that
Other people can’t ,but we will work together to make
Sure voices get heard,no matter what it takes to get discriminate
In order to change the world forever.
This is my English Page B for the world.
