Poetry On Odyssey: Stay Inside

Unprecedented times led to new rules.

With one announcement,

more of a warning really,

a decree of destabilization,

all wanderers had to take root.


New measures were taken

in the name of safety.

No more big meetings,

stay inside.


People changed the way

they went about daily life.

Going to work is for essentials only,

stay inside.


New ordinances were passed.

Wear a mask,

stay six feet apart,

stay inside.


Stay inside became the new

stay safe

zoom calls and video chats

became the new way to hang out.


We don't know when all

these measures will cease

or when things will go back,

but until then stay inside.

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.
