Mexican Pride

I'm proud of the color of my skin,

but the true Mexican comes within.

My skin color on people has an effect,

every body looks at me with respect.

I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world,

even if they offered me a pot of gold.

I thank my mom for giving me a heart,

I thank my dad for showing me to be proud from the start.

I'm Mexican and proud,

I stand out in a crowd.

My Mexican Pride (One of the most famous Mexican pride poems)

Roses are red

Mexicans are brown

that's my race

so don't put it down!

My Mexican pride

I will not hide

My Mexican race

I will not disgrace

My Mexican blood

flows hot and true

My Mexican peeps

I will stand by you

thru thick and thin

till the day we die

Our Mexican flags

Always stands high

I yell this poem

Louder than all the rest.

Because every one knows

Mexicans ARE THE BEST! ! !

Mexican Pride in my mind

MEXICAN BLOOD is my kind

So step aside and let me through

Cuz its all about the Mexican crew

Life sucks and then you die

but if your Mexican

You die with pride! ! ! !

Mexican men never cry

Mexican spirit can never die

Because Mexican truth never lies

And even when facing death Mexican smiles
