That place on the shore

Where I’m from nobody suffers and

people dance.

I’m from the place where I don’t worry and

that one place where I set foot, and I’m automatically happy.

Where I’m from, sea shells become your new best friends

and waves flow like Kobe on the court.

I’m from where sand becomes annoying and

eating seafood is an everyday thing.

Cruises come and go

That one place where I’m from, I never feel low,

the sound of the morning birds could very well be my alarm.

The beautiful smell of the beach on my way to school.

That one place where I’m from, anybody feels rich.

Where I’m from, I live without crying.

That place where people are nice and

everything is so simple as a bowl of rice.

Mazatlan, I miss you,

I wish I could fly and just land where you are.

I  have you waiting, sitting in my heart,

I’m thousands of miles away, we are apart.

Many around the globe love you my Mazatlan.

The music you have, people flying on the dance floor,

your attractions have thousands of people stress-free.

You make an uncountable amount of people happy, my Mazatlan.

The poem is about the place that I grew up in Mexico and lived there for the first 12 years of my life
