I am me

I am me,

I am powerful.

I am a leader.

I am Hispanic.

I am queer.

I am a human being.

I cry, I shout, I plead for the ending of hate 

I kiss, I love, I breath.

I am me, I am a human being.

I smell of dusty streets, and poverty

I look across the line and see my brothers and sisters crying for help.

I am my voice, I am my words, and I speak for those who are silenced 

by the never ending hate and spite and capital white.

I am brave, my voice and words are brave.

We are both human beings, we both have the power of words.

This poem is about: 
My family
My community
My country
Our world
