My American Creed

These poems show how my community, family, and family origins strengthen my American Creed.

Mom's a pharmacist 

She stops illness from spreading

So people won't die


Father helps kids read

So they grow up to succeed

And not fail in life

Uncle owns a shop

He grows the economy

By selling things cheap

Sister teaches kids

So they are intelligent

And live a great life

Family is from

The country of Ireland

Moved to Kentucky
