Fake Or Strong? - Poem by Ruthy Fernandez

From the break until the dawn,
are they fake or are they strong?
They say their men but have wronged the women to which they belong.

Why don’t they know they need to provide?
Search and feed all and not leave one behind
They say their men but have done no good,
however all the women think they should be able to try.

Before it is too late and the time has passed,
these so called men need to show that they can last.
They can be the inspiration for the future of their men.

Come forth and participate in the lives in which they’ve helped create.
They need to do what they have promised,
come back and prove the stereotype wrong.

Show them that brown men may do some wrong
BUT from the break until the dawn
Latinos are not fake but very strong.

They need to show the women to which they belong that they shall stick around
to see them through the good and the bad.
Through all the crap and sadness,
even if they haven’t been feed because they couldn’t make the bread.

As Latino men they need to show their future men
how to be the inspiration because those niños need their guidance.
Otherwise who will show them how to go from crazy boys?
To good Latino MEN.
