Owning Your Narrative: A Tribute To Hispanic Authors Who Didn’t Allow America To Control Their Narratives

Teaching my fourth graders

To be the authors of their narratives

To be the definers of their identities

To be the harvesters of hope

To be dreamers

Teaching my fourth graders

To shout their stories 

Until they ECHOOOOOOOoooooooooo

Beyond the boundaries of disbelief

Beyond the borders of shame

Teaching my fourth graders 

About the House on Mango Street

About Red Hot Salsa 

About the importance of family traditions

About Abuelita and Nana and Grammy

Who dreamed of and harvested hope

Day 20: Hurt

Feelings that submerge

Me into static darkness

Sinking rusted hope

Hope Blowing

clouds ans sun

Sometimes I walk atop clouds

Where the sun touches me

Outstretched like angel’s wings

Warming my soul

A loving inferno

Sometimes I sift through clouds

Dousing fires within me

That possess the power to burn through

And melt my inner darkness

Sometimes, as faith can move mountains

To let true life shine

Hope just blows me away
