A second year university student.
The type of person who finds it hard to find homework pleasant—
But to me books are quite decent.
Creative, I have been told—
With a big future in my hands to hold.
Not related to Castro,
Free, over my head there is no ban.
Always questioned as to how I got here.
Not a sailor, so by boat I did not get here.
Not a soldier, so by fighting I did not get here.
Disappointed in all the questions asked by people who do not bother to read the papers.
Proud of my heritage, the type of person who will say I am Cuban without adding the Canada to the end with the i-a-n letters.
A girl of nineteen years, soon to be twenty this April.
Someone in a multitude of millions who knows how to speak Spanish, and on her “Hi My Name Is…” sticker there is a label.
A Spanish girl, who most don’t believe, but is quite able.
Big brown eyed.
Light brown skinned.
All that I can be,
All that I want to be,
Someone who can, more than her own country’s name and worth, be.
I am Dayla, do you understand me?
