Poem about Mexico

I went to Mexico expecting to have fun
To spend time with friends in the sun
All of this came true at QUest-
It was so much better than the Midwest!

I went to Mexico expecting to learn about the poor
I didn’t expect I’d learn so much more…
Not only about the troubles they face,
or about Cuernavca, Mexico- an amazing place!

I didn’t think I’d feel such a conncetion
or change my goals and personal direction.
I went to Mexico expecting good food
Not to see a lady in the nude!

I knew I’d be out of my comfort zone
While speaking in spanish without my cell phone
But these didn’t matter when I got there
To the problems I saw- they didn’t compare!

If you go to Mexico next year-BEWARE
You wont be ready for what you see there
If you go to Mexico tell my friends “hi”
Don’t be suprised when you cry at “Goodbye”
