Love... by Leilani Lopez
Not ever feeling like I belong.
Always feeling different.
different from how I view others
different from how they view me.
There was always a disconnect
what I SHOULD be and what I am.
I still look in the mirror… … …and don’t see my SELF.
My reflection is still a stranger to me.
What I have always recognized as fact,
one of few things I know about myself - like NO DOUBT:
is my love for e-ver-y-thang Puerto Rico - mi orgullo Boricua
The type of love that Ignites the power within ME.
The kind of love that hurts cuz it feels like it’s going to Explode
out of my chest
| i can’t contain it |
& when you Love anything that much
You want it to be free
to flourish in all its glory.
It’s that Love that
all else, has made me a
for Liberty & Justice
para Mi Gente y todas las personas que demandan
