A number on the on continuing time spectrum.
Defying who we are. Pant sizes, class rank, GPA
all these numbers saying where you are.
Numbers telling you how pretty you are
Defying your being bounding your self esteem
Minorities try to defy stereotypes and statistics
Brown eyes and Brown skin,
becoming an obstacle in our own path.
Enough is Enough
Dr. Seuss saying there is no one truer and than you
Frida Kahlo painting her self portrait despite the negativity
Together we stand breaking the obstacles
Embrace yourself and love it.
There is no one quite like you or me.
My curly mane is untamed
Uncensored tongue waiting to go of
Standards are no longer defying who I stand for
I am an independent, silly girl
Mischievous and Adventures waiting for the next adventure
Mexican by heritage
American by birth
Breaking the mold to fit me
Standing up for the ones without voices
Letting them know they aren't alone
Being myself is the way to go
Not letting them stop me but
rather let them walk with me
I am flawed but I wouldn't
Like it any other way.
