Boriqua

I'm a Hispanic because that's what I'm branded... 
I'm not a race I'm but a culture... 
I'm but a mixture conquered by vultures... 
I'm these urban streets that flow within me...  
I'm from an island that I rarely see... 
I'm born and bred a natural survivor... 
I'm not a color for that's a divider... 
I'm but a being spirit real strong... 
I'm but a mixture African, Indian, White... 
I'm but a person blessed with true sight ... 
I'm but a warrior prepared for a fight... 
I'm but a culture my race is all mixed...  
Spaniards on a quest that came over on ships... 
I'm but of mixed slaughtered beautiful races... 
Embedded with this language from foreign places ... 
I Speak a language that came from blood shed... 
The Indian and African in me will never be dead... 
I'm a loud voice a candle that burns... 
I'm but a sponge that absorbs as I learn... 
I'm but a culture a bunch of lost tribes... 
I am what I am till the day I die...
