Yreina Flores Ortiz - “La Chingona” artwork and poem
Today, I will greet the sun as my relative
and give the morning my full attention.
I will say “I love you” into the mirror
and draw my eyeliner extra straight.
I will not call myself fat
because everything in my closet will look good on me.
I will rock my huge Latina hips
like the blessing they are.
I might even wear heels.
Today, I will not hand out one unnecessary apology.
Today, I will be Chingona!
