Dorita



She always has a way of inspiring me 
Always telling me 
a man can never control me
or define who I am as a woman 
But then she’ll never fail 
to remind me that 
a man would never want
una muchacha promiscua
 as a wife 
Even if he said numbers 
don’t count or scare him
Although you contradict yourself 
you’ll never let me be subpar 
You believe I am gonna make a difference 
in the world
 or maybe just in your heart 
Recognizing that men aren’t shit 
And as women we’re more
More than just housewives 
More than just mothers
Dorita wants me to be more
Your love and kind words 
mixed with outdated thoughts 
have created the person I am now 
Rebellious and conservative 
You made them one in the same 

La Primavera


The sun beams onto my skin
And I soak up the gold
The flowers bloom into wild things
And I feel their magic
La primavera esta aquí
Para enseñar nos
Que después de un invierno fuerte
Life always comes back
Lovelier than ever
