Poetry On The Odyssey: Wandering Child

Wanderlust is real.

As a child,

she dreamed of

mountains and grasslands,

beaches and deserts.


She wanted to wander

the world, the only thing

that could keep her from

her lifelong dream was her youth.


Too young to travel by herself,

she took to fantasy lands and maps

as her way to wander

towards what she dreamed.


The day finally came

where she hung a map on her

wall and threw a dart.

She simply packed a bag and left.


Now the wandering child

goes where her heart

leads, never to stray

from the path she treads.

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.
