I am am a warrior who never stops fighting
I am a proud Mexican female who is not afraid to show her roots
I am courageous and piercing despite my accent
I pretend to ignore the judgement that comes attached with the way I sound
I worry I will never be good enough, but that doesn't stop me from fighting

I am strong beside the fact my father isn't around
I wish my father loved me more than he loves drugs
I hope you someday recover dad
I will be a better parent than you ever were because I know how it  feels not to be loved by your own blood

I am thankful to have an amazing mother
I dream to someday acquire her a house
I dream to be someone in life, someone who makes a difference
See, I understand life isn't easy nor perfect
But I worry I will not make it into college

I worry I will not be financially stable to further my education and achieve my goals  
But, I will never stop grinding
I will be someone in life
I will make a difference

I will make you proud mom.
