Tortilla Moon over a McAllen, TX 4* Hotel Pool

Tortilla Moon over a McAllen, TX 4* Hotel Pool 
For BV
I do not have blond hair
My eyes are not blue
My skin is copper
I’m not milk-colored like you
Your parents look at me
Like I don't belong 
I see all of you watching and 
whisper to my mom 
All these are rich people 
I know, I look scared
I am, it makes me shy

Mom’s friend, who’s not from here
looks at me, smiles, and says 
Girlfriend, you're as rich
If not richer than all those there 
Never forget you're as good 
As anyone anywhere, so don't be shy
Go over and own the world
Yes, it's just as much yours
As it is theirs, let’s go
Jump in that pool
She goes with me
Then I am fine
