Dear Alberto Ríos from Yureli

Dear Alberto Ríos,

I noticed that in your poem you talked about justice and making a difference in society. Why did you decide to write this poem? What inspired you to write about giving? Why did in the line “You gave me blue and I gave you yellow” did you say this? Was it because if it wasn’t for the help of people we wouldn’t be where we are in society? Thanks a lot for telling me your thoughts. I really enjoyed your poem especially because I prefer to write about poetry than normal stories. It helps me in my literature life. This poem really made me reflect on life. It probably did to others to make them want to give. To see how the homeless live in their daily life and make others open their life to be aware of the difficulties we live to survive.
