You, who identify with this revolutionary process, who defends everything it does, who justifies all that has gone wrong in fifty years, who sees enemies everywhere, really in the end, you and I, we are not so different.
You say there is an external blockade that prevents us from advancing economically.
I know there is a blockade, but those who block us are closer than you imagine.
You think you have to be prepared against the enemies of the fatherland.
It is true, the fatherland has enemies, but have you clearly defined who they are?
You praise the work of Cuban doctors in other countries.
I, those who remain here, taking double shifts and working more than the a vendor in the market.
You don’t want any other country to interfere in the problems of Cubans.
I want, that among all Cubans, for once we solve our problems.
You proclaim that in Cuba there is freedom.
I know there are some few, who enjoy all the freedom they please.
You want, for our country, economic improvement.
I do too, but for that, brother, there inevitably has to be a change. Our country (it is mine as well), needs urgent transformations. We are stuck because people like you, you see everything through rose-colored glasses, and don’t realize that people like me, we also want to lift our country.
I know that you want the best for Cuba. But remember, Cuba is all of us.
