A Space for Writers of the World
Have you ever heard the voice of skin?
My skin has the sound of pride
A kind of pride that could only come from within.
1 part black. 1 part Mexican.
Pride for my heritage
For the ones who plowed the fields in obedience
And for the ones who took the beatings of the whip with a raised chin.
Have you ever heard the voice of a Grito?
It is a battle cry of my ancestors.
