I did not know a lot of them as |I grew up.
The few I saw where in the papers
or from television.
Cartoons on Saturday morning were the main source
of cartoon entertainment.
So comics came into my life late.
The ones I always loved were the women
because even back then
I knew the struggles we had were always going to be
because of the society we lived in.
Still, I learned to swim like the Man from Atlantis
and tried to spin my way into my costume
like Wonder Woman.
Dizzy now that I the true hero was always me
and my fight for inequality
for me and my children.
I have outgrown my parents
and seek to leave a better world for the future generations.
