Si, soy diferente!
My words do sound different, and that is my superpower
Mis palabras son mias
And I own every part of my accent
I’m not walking around feeling less than
My accent is my asset
It elevates my wisdom
It helps me express ideas in a unique way
So tell me why?
Why do you feel ‘less than’?
Why the shame?
Why the discomfort?
Why do you ‘make yourself smaller’?
Never again let someone decide your worth
Know that your accent, the color of your skin, your sexual preference
Your fears, your insecurities
They are all your superpowers
And you are even more beautiful
Because of it and despite it
