An awaken nuyorican.

The end of a day, 2 exams and 2 more to go, Wasted from so much studying and my mind is full of information. Information needed to pass a biology test and lab test. Wow! Why didn’t I do this when I was young like 15 years old or was that the last time I was in school? What a foolish decision of mine to join a group of gang members that didn’t amount to nothing, but problems and attitudes that would follow me for a longtime, high nights and low ones, kept me in the middle of the ghetto lights, fighting for turf that didn’t belong to me! “Hey” It belongs to me! The streets and all, what a fall, For I was blind to see that genocide was on,  as we killed each other on the streets of New York City, the real villain was making money and living large, sending their kids to college while we worked in their factories and sold  their drugs. “Que idiotas  somos” Nuyorican con tanto orgullo de que? Las streets de nueva York. They you go, the Spanish I now, mix and match. But, decades later I have awaken to the truth. I will not kill my brother, I will feed him knowledge and let him know, he has been fooled by that social order called exploitation. Yeh! You are an American when I need you, For today you are a?  Let’s all have a mental trip back home and visualize all us Boricuas back in our island dancing in the streets and eating lechon con viandas, and for those who can handle it A rum and coke, for me una piña colada sin ron, no liquor for me. How I would love to rule out crime once and for all, what will it take?  to have justice for all.Well” let me go back to my studying and stop my dreaming, but my thoughts hopefully could one day become a reality.

Have a buen dia  :0)
