The Day I Looked Like Frida

By: Wesley Flores

The day I looked like Frida

It wasn’t bad at all

The day I looked liked Frida

I wanted to hurl my guts in a stall

The day I looked like Frida

I had to go up on a stage

The day I looked like Frida

I felt old with age

The day I looked like Frida

I heard everyone hoop and holler

The day I looked like Frida

I felt ten feet taller

The day I looked like Frida

Was good and fun

The day I looked like Frida

I was glad it was done

The day I looked like Frida

I didn’t feel like myself not one bit

The day I look like Frida

I feel like I didn’t fit

The day I looked like Frida

Was kinda like a key

The day I looked like Frida

It made me feel a little bit more like me

 

Authors Note

I had wanted right about being Frida Kahlo because I had a wide range of emotions that day it was very interesting for me. When I was writing the poem I wanted to describe the different feelings I had during different moments, so before, during, and after. When I was Frida I had to right a speech and dress like her (photo below) for this play for biography day. I decided to put “The day I looked like Frida was because I felt the had to be some clarity about what I was doing.
