Mestizos independence from Spanish Colonizers

new laws and rights had been given

to children and women as in paper one might find

till this day reality still lies.

We cannot pretend that paper writes itself

yet in the enforcement of it we must participate.


Hardships as women we must always fight

that even to this day our last’s names we would trade

for some white privilege I must say,

just like Adelina Otero “Warren” did,

this still  happens today.

Every female generation attempts to upgrade,

however the same struggles seem to prevail

let this not be a feeling of fail,

yet a reason to keep working on ourselves

just like Adelina occupied the first congressional seat,

in the next eight years we might find a glimpse of our own selves

in the United States next presidential chair.
