I am telling you

Discouraged One

we will win.

And I will show you

why.

We are the offspring

of the ignorantly 
discarded:

we  conjure 

 sunrise

with our smiles

and provoke music

out of trash.

Who can completely
disappear
such genius? 

 
This is why humanity

is worth

loving.

Fiercely.

Passionately.

Without a moment

of holding back.

I used to think

it was only

Africans

I loved so dangerously

then I thought it was

Indians;

then Mexicans
Vietnamese
Guatemalans
Cambodians
Laotians
Nicaraguans
Cubans
Haitians
Salvadorans…
all 

those dear ones

so endlessly
lied about.

But no, it is all of us.

It is humanity.

We are  special.

If you don’t believe me,

take two minutes

to

watch

the video.
