My eyes are hazel

You’re not Latina enough

 

My hair is thin and light brown

Still, not Latina enough

 

My skin is white

Not at all, Latina enough

 

I was born in America

Definitely, not Latina enough

 

My body is pear shaped

Can’t be Latina enough

 

I speak Spanglish

For sure, not Latina enough

 

I don’t like too much spice

Seriously, you’re not Latina enough

 

In everyone’s mind

I am not Latina enough

 

I do not check off the stereotypical boxes

Of being a Latina

 

But, en mi corazón y acciones

I am Latina enough

 

In white spaces, I empower mi gente

 

When they are not included, I make spaces for mi gente

 

When they are mistreated, I stand up for mi gente

 

When it is difficult for them to speak English, I translate for mi gente

 

I will always stand con mi gente

 

Therefore, I am more than Latina enough
