I have to learn to accept 

That I will never one hundred percent

Understand my mother

Being bilingüe

Means speaking to my mother

In a broken Spanish

More of the,

“Hi mom ¿como estas?”

And answering 

“I’m good, ¿Cómo están todo para aya?” 

She will ask me si bebí mi ocho copas de agua,

And I would turn the camera to hide my smirk

From the screen

I did not 

Drink my ocho copas de agua 

To say that I have accepted 

My broken spanish

Is an understatement
