head above

i'm drowning oh i'm drowning

the room i'm in is closing in and i feel myself

gasping for air. the people slowly disappear

until i'm all alone. trying to show you that i

can be what you need.

bouncing in and out of my life, i will let you do

it no more. i am not a toy for you to chase like

that anymore. i'm a prize that's worth

earning. and it's concerning your lack of

caring. so i keep my head above water just in

case you want me.

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.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
