I sing to you of Alexis
by Verenice Patino
I sing to you of Alexis.
She went from one sibling to two.
She went from one place to another.
She went from two parents to one.
She changed from one person to another.
Herself, her family, her home, many changes she went through.
Alexis, who became a role model, a friend, a sister when she was only 6.
Alexis, changing countries, from Mexico to USA, when she was 7.
Alexis, from her aunt's house, to her own house when she was 8.
Alexis, betrayed by her dad and strengthened by her mom.
Alexis, she went from quiet and shy to confident, strong and happy.
