If I could be anywhere

I would be at the beach.

Standing in the waves

and racing out to meet them.


If I could be anywhere

I would be in the middle of the woods.

Surrounded by towering trees

and the birds as the flit around overhead.


If I could be anywhere

I would be in a cottage

out in the middle of nowhere.

Just me and nature and a book.


If I could be anywhere

I would be in the place of my dreams.

A cat or dog would be following me

and I'd have hot coffee in hand.


If I could be anywhere

she said,

I would go wherever you are,

my favorite place on Earth.

I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.
