Two Cultures,One Heart

Two cultures live within me

They work side by side

Friendly yet fiercely when they want my attention

She dominates proudly

When I sing and dance 

To Cumbia music

Putting flavor to my life 

And her traditional foods with exotic spices

He slowly waits to empower 

Like a lion with its prey 

I live in his territory 

Mingle with his people 

And follow his rules 

It would only be time 

When I trade her for him 

But my blood lives for my Latin

culture and language 

No matter where I 

Live or who I interact with 

Because my culture 

Forever live in my Heart
