What do I call myself? If the world sees me differently then I see myself? If I’m a blancita? Blancita, a white girl. Am I just a white girl? Does the Spanish that escapes my mouth tell you I’m a white girl? Even when that language was forced onto my tongue. Does the brown in my eyes resemble my mother’s skin? If she’s a morena? Morena, a brown girl. But do you know the stories my body tell? Does the curve of my nose, the crease of my eye, or the curl of my hair tell you I’m a white girl? Can you tell the kid that called me a **** at school that I’m a white girl? Or the girl who told me my people were toxic that I’m a white girl? Can I even call this brown girl blues? Since my native blood isn't reflected in my skins hue? Why don’t you tell me? Because if I’m just a white girl, then what freedom do my people seek.
