never tell me I can’t. | a poem by Eva López Martinez

Never tell me

I can’t do it.

To me, I danced

With two hearts.

And I breathed

With four lungs.

To me, I’ve been ice

Fire and wind.

I’ve taken

In my belly

The weight of two worlds,

And I have born

Life is screaming.

That I embraced

To sadness without fear.

And I cried smiles.

Don’t tell me

That I’m not capable

Of something.

Or everything.

– Eva López Martinez
