We are not color blind
We are the colors of the rainbow
We are all the many shades in between
We are all the beautiful colors together
We are love
We are one
We are Houston

"My Roots"
It's complicated to write a poem,
But it's simple to plant a seed.
but to me, I think
it's simple,
even now...
I am what I am. I'm an Arab,
A Malaysian, a Greek,
and an American. it's simple,
even now...
I feel everything.
I feel. I feel...curiosity,
I feel diversity, I feel exploration.
I feel. I feel...
INSPIRATION!

Writer's Name: Ava Barker
School: Harvard Elementary School

They say everything is bigger in Texas,
BUT
Nothing’s bigger than the taste of culture in H-Town.
From crawfish sushi on Bellaire
Bratwurst and Wiener Schnitzel on T C Jester
To crane juice and Pani Puri on Hillcroft
Or jerk chicken on W Bellfort.
We say:
Chao mung
Witamy
benvenuto
Bienvenue
Bienvenido
اهلا بيك ('ahlaan bik)
We say WELCOME.
