Enough

By: Ileana Salinas-Mireles & Reyna E. Montoya

Recuerdo las noches

de preocupación

urgentes mensajes

la televisión

Miedo que mis padres,

hermanxs o amigxs

Anduvieran cerca

de la intersección

Basta, Basta

Tú no decides quienes somos

Basta, Basta
Tú no decides dónde vamos

Miedo a las redadas

La deportación

Miedo a usar mi nombre

O mostrar quien soy

Cansada, agotada

Temiendo salir

Que un día llegaran

tus sheriffs por mi

Basta, Basta

No decides quienes somos

Basta, Basta
Tú no decides dónde vamos

Enough

I’m tired of this insanity

Of seeing children crying

You’re hurting my community

You’re hurting my family

Can’t pretend you haven’t hurt us

Or that you are not out to get us

‘Cause We’ve seen your raids outside

All you see in us is crime

Enough

You’ll no longer oppress us

‘Cause the color of our skin

We tired of being less than human

when you hear us speak

Enough

We’ll see you in November

When the polls are on our side

We won’t see you as our sheriff

You are done this time
