When You Love A Mexican Man

img_1401

When you love a Mexican Man,You have to be apasionada,
And know how to back up your shit,
If you can’t walk the walk,
Don’t try to talk the talk
A Mexican Man will make you regret it.
Because he will test you over and over
To see what he can get away with.
What you will let slide,
Is where his boundaries lie.

When you love a Mexican Man,
You have to hold the reigns,
Because he will try to take control,
Of a vehicle he was never meant to steer.
He will show up late to a date,
Already buzzed and high,
Grab you by your waist,
Dig into your chest with his mouth,
Squeeze your ass and rub your inner thighs,
In public.

When you love a Mexican Man,
You have to learn how to love yourself first.
Because he will ask you to choose him,
Just as our grandmothers and mothers
Have shown us to choose his needs over ours,
He will ask you to choose his career over yours,
He will ask you to be a mother over a woman,
He will ask you to be a wife over a person,
And it is up to you to say,
“Perdoname mi cielo,
pero yo voy a perseguir mis suenos primero.”

When you love a Mexican Man,
You must learn to fight with words.
Your words must be as sharp as your R’s
When you pronounce amor,
As sharp as the knives you cut your tomatoes with,
Sharp so that he understands that you are a force to be reckoned with,
And he better know his place
As your partner,
And not is sidekick.

When you love a Mexican Man,
You must be prepared to finish last.
Because he comes from a home
Where he always eats first,
Where a kiss is always accepted,
Where he never had to clean, or cocinar,
But be prepared to say no, over and over.
Because he will test you,
But he will also remind you,
Of the strong woman you are for loving such a Mexican Man
