Cuando Era Puertorriqueña

one out of seven
 fought back poverty with books
 same family, same chance
 
 i see my students
 make these same choices–young! yet–
 old enough to know
 
 should i fight for them?
 for a dream they look for?
 or is it my dream?
 
 this i’ll never know
 but i’d be one of seven
 and fight my way out
