Who is MadMex?

Ask and you shall receive. My name is Ricardo Castro. I was born in San Jose, California on October 27, 1970. I am the oldest of three children born to parents who immigrated from Mexico. In 1984 we uprooted and moved to Kansas City, Missouri. I first began to write poetry as a way to express my feelings. I find it easier to say things on paper than to express them verbally. All of my poetry is an extension of my feelings and is not intended to offend anyone.

After reading these poems, I hope you will have a better understanding of the world of MadMex.
