Denied, 2010
Vickie M. Ortiz Vázquez

Human am I
So, I hear I am human
Therefore, human rights by nature are mine
Who have spoken of these?
Martin Luther King, Jr
Cesar Chavez
The Black Panther Party and the F.L.A.N

Human am I
Born female with a path
Grown to a woman with a guilty mark
So, I hear I am human
Therefore, human rights by nature are mine

Grown to a woman
Human still am I
Yet, simple human rights have been denied 
To brothers and sisters of mine

Still human am I
Therefore, human rights are being denied 
By those who can’t understand
What nature can’t denied

Human am I
So, I hear I am human
Still a human am I
A woman with human rights…
