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: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
