De dónde vengo?... El más horrible y...

Language: Spanish (Español)

¿De dónde vengo?... El más horrible y áspero
de los senderos busca.
Las huellas de unos pies ensangrentados 
sobre la roca dura, 
los despojos de un alma hecha jirones 
en las zarzas agudas, 
te dirán el camino 
que conduce a mi cuna. 

¿Adónde voy? El más sombrío y triste 
de los páramos cruza, 
valle de eternas nieves y de eternas
melancólicas brumas. 
En donde esté una piedra solitaria 
sin inscripción alguna, 
donde habite el olvido, 
allí estará mi tumba.
