Javier, hijo, where were you born?
“Yo no se” he replied, downcast, forlorn
A soul, a face, sore, bare feet
Scars inside and out, life on the street.
Hijo, peace, this is your home
Your brothers, your friends, bienvenidos, welcome
Your soul, your heart, we want them back
We will find them here - IPODERAC
