You make of me the stars, when all I saw was moon

Yoliliztli Born

I write today
Not much for the legitimacy of tomorrow
Or for the memories of yesterday

Found my voice in you
Found my strength in you
Found myself in you
You make of me the stars
When all I saw was moon

I?ve waited all my life
To witness such a change
The drastic impulse of one night?s dream
Soaked up to be
More than just a life
Guiding you has been my calling
For this I thank you

Three years old

An echo of resistance
Vibrating through my womb
You have embarked me on a mission
Connected my mind to different struggles
Creating a stronger, sounder womyn
Regardless of what my actions have to say

Life in motion
