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.
