Nocac cani (I am)

Nocac cani (I am)

Nocac cani
the girls who speaks
more than one language,
but still struggles to be understood.

Nocac cani
the girl who hears
what people say about her,
but can’t seem to get them to listen.

Nocac cani
the girl who has
a solid identity,
but still doesn’t know which side to use.

Nocac cani
the girl who wants
To do more than just live,
But struggles to find a reason why.

Nocac cani
the girl who wears
her culture like a garment,
proudly displaying her roots.

Shouting from the rooftops her story
listening to the cries of her people,
possessing within herself the power of change,
desiring a better future for her and her family

Nocac cani
the girl who will
break down barriers,
And is force to be reckoned with.
