what's in a name?
Part 1: The poem
I am Andreina del Carmen Santos
Andreina from my father Andres
from Dominican Republic, who moved to Brooklyn 6 years ago,
Carmen from the Virgin from the church,
Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
And Santos from my father´s family.
But to my family I'm Flaca-Skinny.
Something my friend call me Rubia.
and to those who don't know me ¨Im a good friend¨
But the truth is I'm trustful
but I don't trust people who are not honest
Nice to your face and mean behind your back
I am Andreina del Carmen Santos.
