Por Que

the language i read
in your eyes
when you look at me
is a foreign language
i don’t speak

in school
i learned a little spanish
but
i don’t really remember

blanco
is white, right?
cuando
that’s how much or how
many, right?
por que
why?

i don’t know

did we ever speak
the same language
or
have we always been
lovers
who traveled from
foreign lands

true intentions
lost in translation
worthless currency

now i shield my eyes
to prevent
you from seeing
that i already know
we’ve always been speaking
two different languages

por que?
porque

Peace & Love,
Rosalind

About Rosalind Guy

I'm broken & my soul is weary/ my weary soul rebels, fights/ anything & anyone who tries to heal me/I beat my head against a wall of memories/ trying hard to break free from the chain of memories/ I can only be free by saying it so/ i weave a necklace from words and finally/ I find freedom/ free free free. As you can see, words are powerful to me. As Maya Angelou said, words are wallpaper of the soul. I have lots of nightmarish memories that threaten to break me, but I learned a long time ago about the power of words. They can be used to heal and destroy anything that threatens to destroy the person. Words coupled with love have the power to save and heal. I am author of three books: Skinny Dipping in the Pool of Womanhood, Tattered Butterfly Wings, and Blues of a Love Junkie. I am a high school English teacher. I am a former reporter. I am a mother. I am a woman. I am a fierce advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves, those who's voices go unheard.
