I Will Not Accept

I can accept that life isn’t always fair
I can accept that I can’t drive without risking it all
I can accept that I can’t work while having it all:
a college degree, some experience, “the will”
But “the way” is unreachable, keeping me still
I can accept that I have it all and I have nothing!

But I cannot accept, and will always reject
that I cannot love
for the reasons above!
I will always fight this monster, embodied by
the racist views
against differenct hues
of my skin and tone
I will never condone
my inability to love
I will always fight this monster fed stronger by
inaction…
no reaction
or ignorace
to bigger plans
of this country’s racial purification.
And it’s not just a crazy allegation
when the very fabrication
of SB1070 was by an organization
whose sole purpose is a white America.

So I won’t accept that because they’re afraid of “losing”
a country begotten by the raping and pillaging
of native villages
and ignore the truth, which is…
They are holding on to what’s not rightfully just theirs
and tearing me apart from what’s rightfully mine
I don’t wanna take over your country…
I wanna be part of it…
So that I can love the woman I love
and she can love me how it’s meant to be
without having to fear
that the end is near
when I drive to go see her.

So that getting stopped
for getting caught
in the park at night
will not give us fright
along with a vision
of total submission
to the situation that tells us that we cannot love each other
because I am undocumented
so our love is too
and that it doesn’t matter
if our love is true.

I will fight this heartless wind
I have faith that love will one day win.

Realization

And the reality of it all is just settling in.
Marriage. Both against our will.
But you, can at least love him still.
And I. Well that’s an unimportant matter.

But if this doesn’t kill me, it will leave me stronger
to handle the pain of living and with you no longer.
And it may just be never, maybe just too late,
But I just do not give damn about God or my fate.
I will keep on fighting, even against His will,
He cannot more condemn me, or cause me one more ill.

But in end, I can be happy for you
there is no rancor when I say
Be happy, and I can be happy
Even if as friend I stay.

But this hurts so much, because I will never find
another girl I can love like you
Maybe, Juan Gabriel was right, I was just not born to love,
or be loved by you. :’-(

Screw it…
I Love You and I cannot change it!
No regrets! I don’t wanna change it!
As for life? Later WE can change it!
