Poetry from Mirta Liliana Ramirez

Older middle aged Latina woman with short reddish brown hair, light brown eyes, and a grey blouse.
Mirta Liliana Ramirez

I am spark  
that turns on the lights
so you don't walk 
in the dark
I am a flame
that lights the necessary bonfire
of the integration of the four elements
I am the flare  
that is seen from afar 
the inhabitants of the world  
know that it exists 
and that it 
has made invisible the barriers 
of language, race, religion and distance...
I'm blessed
I am the one who has endured 
through the years  
opening minds 
the Creator has been my guide 
in this crusade 
I alone 
a mere mortal 
would not have achieved it.
