“Nobody is more dangerous than he who imagines himself pure in heart; for his purity, by definition, is unassailable” • James Baldwin

I have been doing some research on my name and how it pertains to me. My name is a contracted form of the name Katherine and it means “pure.” My Soul Urge number is 11 which derives from the vowels in my name, “Katrina”. This number is also my expression number which is a numerology also derived from my name. The number 11 is considered a master number meaning that it associates with high spiritual vibrations and intuition. I wrote this poem as a tribute to myself and kind of as a representation of just the essence of who I am.

"Katrina" by Katrina Rojas

Pure like the skin of my ancestors,

like the smile of my abuelíta on Sunday,

like the strength of my brothers.

Pure like the rose of a quartz,

like the wrinkles in the sand,
