Jose Marti

(1853-1895 / Cuba)

I wish to leave the world


I wish to leave the world
By its natural door;
In my tomb of green leaves
They are to carry me to die.
Do not put me in the dark
To die like a traitor;
I am good, and like a good thing
I will die with my face to the sun

To war and arms I fly.
