My Familia

Hafa Adai! As part of my commitment to continue to share cultural poems relating to our beautiful island of Guam and its people, here’s Korasón Poem #12 titled Familia. Enjoy!


My familia*
Oh how I love them so
For they care for me through thick and thin
With sincere gestures that touch my heart
They keep me motivated
To do the best
In all that I do!
Si Yu’os Ma’ase for everything!
I love you all!
