Alis N. Ramírez
Red, blue and white are the colors of her soul,
one that can’t be controlled.
And her fierceness is sole,
unstoppable and can’t be hold.
Africans, Tainos and Spaniards; are the mixture of her children,
who inherited a diversity that can’t be hidden,
and like every child, who abandons their mother,
they leave and seek a better life with wonder.
Pure talent runs through her veins,
and her soul is a party spirit that can’t be retained.
A succulent “bomba & plena” emerge from within,
that will make everyone dance and grin.
All of her is a paradise,
one full of beauty, talent and spice.
She is strong, a soul without chains,
and can face the worst hurricanes.
She is Borinquen.
