Culture Forgotten - Poem by Jeremy Rascon

In a gringo society
Chicanos thrive
culture changing
as we try to survive
the vatos in the calles
kill our own kind
our culture we can't find
Aztec ancestors
Spanish savages
the blood of warriors
but our native tongue is tied
family from mexico, access denied
a fence divides
we act out in aggression
now la raza has tension
tattoos with meaning unknown
ignorance is whats really shown
our culture is lost
