    Roberto is my son but I know I am not being biased. He is brilliant! His spoken word is powerful and relevant especially the poems about his struggles, politics and the injustices of the world. Anyone who can put thoughts and words together like he does is special. I love your Roberto! Mom

My Mistake

There is no excuse
I’m not trying to make it right
The minute you walked in
I lied to prevent a fight

The truth had I told you

I’d change the things I said
And the things that I have done

I didn’t mean to hurt you
Yet it’s what I have done
For as much as I try to be different
I’m just like the other ones

The things I do
The things I say
May not be the worst
Lying to you just one time
Removed the faith ...
