I’m From Lancaster, Pennsylvania

I’m from a city in New Jersey called Passaic.

I’m from walking to Martin Luther King #6 School every day with Manuel.

I’m from watching my Uncle leave to serve his country on a rainy morning.

I’m from moving from New Jersey to Lancaster nine years ago.

I’m from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

I’m from walking down Main Street.

I’m from taking two bus rides and three different train rides to get to New York.

I’m from watching my parents dance to Bachata and Merengue, which is highly embarrassing.

I’m from un tubo y siete llaves.

I’m from watching my Grandma dancing with a broom.

I’m from Lancaster, Pennsylvania where home is.
