A Poem For My “Cousin’s” 18th Birthday

Dear Jazmine,

By Briahna DeAnda


You are my cousin

Not by blood

But by heart


You are beautiful

You outshine

All others


You are strong

I see your resilience

In everything you do


You are loved

By your family

Of blood and of heart


You are an adult now

Ready to take on the world

I trust you’ll change it for better


You must never forget

That things will always get better

If you keep on keeping on
