I AM A GIRL

Escuelas Autonomas del EZLN

∞Angelica Leon
I am a girl
I am a minority,
In a machismo world
It’s not fantastic
I am a girl
I am Mexican
My skin may not be dark
Maybe that’s why I am able to do more
I am a girl
Who has been
Mistreated
Abused
Kicked around
Moving house to house
Raped
Silenced
I am a girl
Who moves around silently
I am a girl
Who does what she’s told
Who doesn’t speak out
I am a girl
But don’t underestimate me
