Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

She’s a Tree


Look at her,

see how tall she stands.

Carrying everything and a little more.

But we never notice,

because she stands so tall

Like a tree


Her roots showing on her forehead

Along with the drops of sweat dripping down to her chin

Showing her resilience.

She looks weary

Se le ve en los ojos

“Nomas ando cansada”

But she's not just tired of working

She has fought a war

She has fought for me.

Her heavy roots

They've kept me grounded

I’m just a seed now

But I will be like you

I will grow

I will be a tree and hold you

Y llevaremos resilience en la frente
