I am truly the best gift given

to my parents by the universe

for I am the best version

and the worst version

of themselves.


My nose is grand like my father's

and how he could sense a moment

whenever I wasn't happy,

he could make it better

by just a simple hug.


The bags that lay underneath

my eyes mimic the ones that

my mom has that show the

sacrifices she has made

to make sure I never starve.


And when I miss the very

two people, the universe gave me

as the guardians of this world,

I'll just look in the mirror

to see them in me.
