  • spanish -

    I, I left Cuba still a girl,
    I have exactly
    half of my life in exile,
    I have a husband with his own business,
    two daughters born in the United States,
    a house in the suburbs
    (mortgaged to the roof)
    And I do not know how many credit cards.
    I, who speak the English almost without accent,
    that I love Walt Whitman
    and until I begin to endure the winter,
    I declare, today last Monday of September,
    that as soon as I can leave everything
    and return to Cuba.

    I further declare that I will not take
    revenge on anyone,
    nor recover property,
    nor, like many, that is why I
    bathe in Varadero.

    I will return, simply
    because I am
    owed to Cuba.
