Mamá’s Acento 
by Lizbeth Velasco, Youth Promotora

Her accent is as thick as the blood that runs through our veins
Behind every single word she speaks, comes a story
Each word she delivers comes with her past, her roots, and her struggles
Her accent is beautiful, strong, and bold like the woman she is 
Her accent is a part of her no one will ever be able to take away
Her accent is one of a kind, never heard before 
Her accent is a single rose in a field of daisies 
Her accent is rich, powerful and forceful
Her words dance around her mouth and roll off her tongue with each pronunciation
