These are poignantly constructed poems that deal with deep, sensitive personal feelings and experiences. They are moving in their simplicity, directness, and clarity. The strength, character and resiliency of Mercedez comes through as she describes tragic events, prejudice, abusers as well as those she loves in her "short, long life". Using events from the past to reveal her present, we are then lifted towards hope for bright future for this talented young woman.
