Quién eres in this gringo world?

By: Daisy Isamar Ramos

 

Virgin María llena eres de independencia

 

My brown soul will forever carry your bandera 

 

For it flourishes the common era for womxn’s freedom 

 

In America being chicana is nothing but a mix of this gringo world with a dash of my Mexican roots deeply furled 

 

This identity will be the vanity of who I represent

 

And this Mexican race will never be of disgrace 

 

As the sun beams on our golden bodies you will by all means look over your people

 

After all you are not just our mother you also feather our pain
