In the Passing of my Late Great- grandmother, Lucia

In your eyes, I see my future.

In my eyes, you saw your past.

Your past formed my present, my present that could have been different.

I could have been different.

You fought for your rights, your place, your home.

Your fight has changed my past, present, future.

Your legacy will continue with me and my family around me.

Cousins, sibling, more.

They will remember you

until there is nothing left.

I will hear your cries

to change my future.

To form it in your image.
