Mi Vida Loca

By CR 

I remember me saying:

Vivo una vida loca (living a crazy life)

I also remember saying:

Por mi madre vivo, por mi barrio muero (live for my mother, die for my hood)

But guess what now?

I’m tired of living that life style

Since I was 12

Now that I’m close to turning 17

While I’m locked up

Made me realize that I didn’t have a childhood

All I had was money, females, drugs

And witnessing wild things happen around my way

People say and still do say to this moment

When I come home: “I’m Dead”

But I fear no man

But the person who can judge me after I die

So like what my associates told me:

“You’re honorably discharged from your duties”

Una Amistad / A Friendship

By L.V.

 

Una amistad como la que tú me ofreces

Es difícil de encontrar,

Reconoceré que me gustas

Y me gustaría que tú en mi confiaras.

Tal vez pienses que estoy loco

Pero no dejo de pensar en ti ni un poco

Déjame demostrarte que mis sentimientos son sinceros,

Déjame conocerte ya verás que soy verdadero.

Una amistad como la tuya es con la que yo siempre esperé,

La espera ha terminado

Tú estás de mi lado

Es algo extraño como mis pensamientos son controlados por ti.

 

 

 

 

A friendship like the one you offer me

Is difficult to find,

I’ll admit that I like you

And I’d like for you to trust me.

Maybe you think I’m crazy

But I don’t stop thinking about you, not even a little

Let me show you that my feelings are sincere,

Let me get to know you and you will see that I’m true.

A friendship like yours is what I’ve always waited for,

The wait has ended

You are at my side

It’s strange how my thoughts are controlled by you.
