Aspirations

They don’t want us to dream

Because dreams lead to hope

Hope leads to believing

Believing leads to action

Action leads to success

Success leads to making a difference

Making a difference leads to teaching

Teaching leads to education

Education leads to knowledge

Knowledge leads to seeing

Seeing leads to opening minds

Opening minds lead to more and more

Dreams

And they don’t want us to dream

Just ask MLK

And the minds and eyes he opened

They don’t want us to dream

Because dreams lead to revolutions

Revolutions mean a coming together

Coming together gives us strength

They don’t want us to dream

Because dreams give us power

The power to believe

The power to make a difference

And discover what’s possible

For all

Not just a select few

They don’t want us to dream

So they put us down

Create doubts that we have what it takes

They don’t want us to dream

Because there is power in dreams

They don’t want us to dream

Do it anyway

Do it anyway

Because we have Dignity

They call us animals

Because we flee poverty

To pursue opportunity

They call us animals

Because we work hard

And are willing to do

What they think they are above

They call us animals

Burros, donkeys, asses

We are not

Although we do work our tails off

They call us animals

Because we’re scrappy

Because we’re strong

Because we fight to live

They call us animals

They call us animals

They call us animals

Because we want a better life

For ourselves

Our future

Our kids

Because we have dignity by Robert Rodriguez. June 20, 2018. 12:00PM

The Blunders Of Life

It’s the mistakes

That led to this life

The beauty

And serenity

It’s the mistakes

That brought me down this path

To want to be better

And let go of the worry

It’s the mistakes

That led to the in depth

Cleansing of the guilt

That used to weigh down

Day to day living

It’s the mistakes

That led to self love

And love of others

And accept us all

For who we are

Mistakes

And all

Getting To Know Each Other

If we ever have a chance to meet

Face to face

I’ll probably share too much

If we’ve already met

You may have already noticed this

If we ever have a chance to meet

You don’t have to worry

About awkward silence

Awkward conversations

Is another story

If we already met

Hopefully it doesn’t happen too often

If we ever have a chance to meet

I’ll likely joke around

To hide the fact

That I get nervous

Meeting new people

Although

If we’ve already met

You may not know this

Because I hide it well
