Tres Generaciones

IMG_5663


I am 3 generations of colonization. I am 3 generations of immigration.

I am 3 generations of abuse. I am 3 generations of alcohol and drug use.

I am 3 generations of depression. I am 3 generations of sinful Catholic confessions.

I am 3 generations of women born on Halloween. I am 3 generations of women who are in between.

I am 3 generations of living in California. I am 3 generations of living in Tijuana.

I am 3 generations of speaking Spanglish. I am 3 generations of never being ashamed.

Tres generaciones of women who sacrificed everything for me to be alive.

Tres generaciones I owe to my mothers who taught me how to survive and thrive.
