Lately is Spelled with Colors

Gabriela S Marroquin

Hello, my name is Gabriela Marroquin, with really strong R pronounciation, I’m a 20 year old Hispanic student! My poem focuses on a kind of inner monologue that I, as a person of color, have about myself and the color of my skin in the society I live in. I know it’s sometimes hard to accept who we are, but I firmly believe that the solution lies in loving yourself first.
