I don't know what I write until I write it. I make mistakes, but what I write comes from my heart. I used to post what I wrote that same day. Now, I take a little more time because I write to make you smile.

How life has changed in ten years
"By the Border by the Sea" by poetwatch
On the beach by the border
With the sun shining sand
We walked together holding hands.
It seems like yesterday,
But it was ten years ago,
Give or take.
Then Space X came and ruined the land,
Trashed the fishing
Procure the people out,
In the name of progress.
No home to see
Baby turtles rush to the sea.
Now, loud noises, broken eggs,
Food for birds.
Yet, it brought jobs to the Valley.
Plenty of labor for free
Compadre city once more.
I scratch and the money itch my way.
The rich get richer,
No more Boca Chica beach,
The poor...
Well, they stay poor
In the name of progress.

Author Notes
I grew up in Brownsville, Texas, and fished in Boca Chica Beach. It was wild and beautiful. Now Space X is there destroying nature. They close the road for days at a time for testing. As far as I know they are weakening the sand with each blast. But, that's progress.
