Our credit histories are being manipulated without our saying or doing anything wrong.
It’s ironic because our doings were in an effort to build our credit, a
and yet, we have been challenged by the companies we thought we could trust most.
We were so remote in this entire process,
and somehow we appear at the center of it all.
And while we are at some kind of war with our credit reports and accounts,
we begin to verge on another one
continue to be taken
and the difference
justice and injustice
continues to blur
when we don’t take a step back.
We begin to battle between
of love and hate
when there’s a
much more common
understanding and neutrality
despite our impassioned passions.
And on top of those battles,
other places suffer differently,

My small, poor island, Puerto Rico
finding ways to cope in their dismayed lives
finding ways to find hope under the rubble
finding ways to rebuild their broken souls, and then, the places they call home
pleading for our help–
not because they want to
but because they have to
and at the same time, are not ashamed to,
because lives full of futures are at risk.
And lives not directly impacted are at risk regardless…
as we are heading

kind of war
shaped in nuclear spheres
between two powers
that want to hold all the spheres on their own
Today, and our world
Born to die
as beautiful people
with beautiful problems,
