Red and black runs in my veins
Everyone fears that it does
Because of you I am me
And because of you I am Albanian
Albanian is what I am
It keeps me going
And because of you
A piece of me is apart you

The shqiponja is what I see
And for you ill keep my head up high
And for you I will die
I’m proud to be Albanian

The fact that we are willing to put our life on the line for our country is a lot and I want them to take that in. I think this poem defines me as a poet because if I was a poet all I would do is write about my cultural, my country, and my flag because they mean a lot to me. I want the traditions from the past to be pasted down to me and I my family because I don’t want them to stop at me I want my kids to know how much they mean to me. I personally like the poem because it means a lot to me and that it’s...
