The Migration Postcard Poem Project: Because We Come From Everything

During the month of March, Kundiman fellows will participate in a Migration Postcard Poem Project called Because We Come From Everything: Poetry & Migration. Fellows will write and mail postcard poems highlighting the theme of migration.

Please join us by writing your own postcards and sending them out–– tweeting us @kundimanforever, using the hashtags #WeComeFromEverything and #PoetryCoalition. Email an image of your postcard to communications@kundiman.org–– we will be featuring select postcards on our Twitter, Facebook, and Fireside Tumblr.

No somos nada y venimos de la nada
pero esa nada lo es todo si la nutres de amor
por eso venceremos


We are nothing and we come from nothing
but that nothing is everything, if you feed it with love
that is why we will triumph

We are everything hermana
Because we come from everything
