A Message to Donald Trump

A Message to Donald Trump

A Poem by Norma Gonzalez
"

I am a woman I am Mexican And I am an American Soldier

"
I'm no rapist
And I am no weak
The two things that you have blasted in public
You have described me

I'm a woman
And I am Mexican
But you'll be surprised 
That I am too
An American Soldier

I am not serving for the benefits
I am serving to protect my country
Even if it has to be behind a desk
I am willing to sacrifice my life for you

I'm no illegal and I'm no alien
I have not killed
Nor am I lazy
I have killed my brains to make this world a living of peace
And most of all free from hate

I did not sign up to serve a country
Where so many beautiful people, either;
latinos, arabians, asians, africans, and so on, 
to be criticized in a place call 
"The American Dream"

I AM serving to make my country a worthy place for all
types of race, gender, and color of skin.
I will fight for that country and only that country.

If the government decides to change that
I will take off my uniform
And walk beside my people
I don't mean only Hispanics,
My people who are criticized harshly
For not being "white"

I don't have anything against the "white"
Why?
I have white friends, the most generous, and beautiful
people I have met.
I wish that every "white" human being were like this.
Because if they were, I would be proud to be your protector against harms way.

I will NOT go back to my country
Because I'm already standing on it.
If that is how you want to put it than you should go back 
To your country, Scotland or Germany.
Because those who have lived in this soil long before immigrants came,
were Native Americans and Mexicans.
And you don't see me saying "Go back to YOUR country"
Do you?

On contrare, my ancestors have opened their arms to your ancestors
In a welcome greeting.
Willing to share their lands in living peace.

As for now I stand in arms ready to fight what I believe is just.
Because I am a woman
I am Mexican
And I am an American Soldier.
