Dreaming In Colors

She’s dreaming in colors,
she’s dreaming
in brown.

My princess is brown,
Mexican, Tejana and proud.
For a thousand years

she has endured the oppression
by the Spaniards,
by the white man,

by men of her own color.
My princess is brown,
and she’s lived with oppression

and discrimination and rape
all of her brown life.
She’s always dreamed

of a better life.
So, every night she dreams in color,
she’s dreaming the color brown.

She’s dreaming the dream coming true,
she’s dreaming as hard as she can.
She’s dreaming in colors---all of them brown.
