As a tall lean and athletic Mexican boy,
I look back to back to my past from which I was employed.
How my family has raised me to this moment,
Gratitude and Humility is all I have to show in current.
With the blood, sweat and tears of my grandparents,
I chose to exceed beyond all standards instead of laments.
As I stay in college away from all of my relatives,
I will always keep them close to my heart-where they also live.
Whenever I have rough times or when I am I need,
I look up at the horizon and remember my Mexican family.
