Yes I am Hispanic
Oh no don’t panic,
Why are you assuming I’m not a U.S Citizen?
I can speak English just as good as you
Only thing makes me different is that I can speak Spanish!
I’ll even add a bit of Spanglish
I’m trying to reach the top
Because my mom swam nonstop
I’ve always been humble
Tried not to mumble
When they asked about my struggles
See I don’t let my past effect me
If I did opportunities would neglect me
When people see me they think I’m white
Sadly my last name brings nothing but spite
Money is scarce
Dreaming of a full course
I’m fighting for my education
Only to have a set foundation
Hispanics don’t settle for rejection
We rise from subjection
Empowerment is connection
Soon enough you’ll have a Hispanic in an election.
I will be an Entrepreneur
