Ramirez

By Marco Ramirez, Denver, CO

My name is Ramirez
My name is Mexico
My name is the color
brown
on the poor man's skin
looking for a job,
looking for an opportunity
if he finds one ,
he won't wait

and make it into a
dream.


My name is not the American white man
working as a bussiness man
born rich because his parents
and grandparents
and greatgrandparents
were born into
the richest nation of the
world.
My name is the sweat
My name is the blood
My name is the tears
pouring out of the
struggling man
wanting to help his
family by earning
minimum wages.
My name is RAMIREZ
