Poem: A piece of heaven

florence-ConvertImageA claim to the piece of the jungle
The concrete jungle known by all
Their little piece of heaven
They claim to own yet they are but slaves
Slaves to a system that feeds on them
In a jungle created
In a jungle death found
Yet they continue to claim what once belonged to them
A land in the generations that have now gone away
Yet in the jungle their rose will one day die
A barrio to some
A jungle to others
A claim of the unknown
To one day claim their life and take them to the unknown
