Judith Ortiz Cofer

quinceanera poem

Sólo se cumplen 15 años una vez en la vida, así que ¡celebremos! When arguing with her father, she points out that they do not live in Puerto Rico anymore, it is. She is now obsessed with this boy, through love, and is trapped,. A girl becomes a princess in the eyes of God. A quinceañera comes just once in a lifetime, so celebrate! Because today you are a woman, And your childish days are through. Quinceañeras are lavish parties full of fun, food, dancing, and deep family tradition. A fat man in a basement tattoos a scraggly moon on your hip, anything to smother the soft and constant vertigo, to stitch a spirit so riddled with leeches. It is one of the most important celebrations for Latina Girls.

Yes you can not beat that. No amount is too small. This author takes her own experience and puts it into the poem. Verás con alegría cómo me he transformado, Y a una nueva etapa de mi vida he ingresado.

This poem really made me wonder if she is not the only woman who feels this way about Quinceaneras…. Both are bright, love to read, and feel like outsiders. My outlook on life is changed now, And it's time for me to take my place, With the women of my family, As childhood steps back a pace. Such a fucked holiness, you think. Viéndote brillar en este día, Es fácil descubrir hija querida, Que tu hermoso vestido de quince años, Anuncia que ese momento ya ha llegado.
