La Lucha De Mi Familia

The color of intensity

Running through our veins


Deep beneath the surface

The emotion sill remains


Passion is emerging

Burning fire you can’t hide


Roses begin to blossom

Like the calmness deep inside


Bold, confident, strong

Yet the struggle is not abating


Emotions more intense

Than the comments they are making


Intimidation runs wild

As the energy travels beyond


Flamenco dancers stomping

As the culture lives on


Confidence, authority, unity

Often left unsaid


This is my culture

And my color is red

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