Hubo la historia de un golpe
Sintio en su cabeza cristales molidos
Y comprendio que la guerra
Era la paz del futuro

from Silvio Rodriguez – El elegido Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Describes Abel’s participation and sacrifice in the assault to Cuartel Moscada. He was supposed to take the back of the Hospital Civil. Fidel gave him this “less” dangerous task to ensure he would remain alive and would take his place in case he was captured. However, Batista’s soldiers attacked his group and they kept fighting to give time to Fidel’s and Raul’s group to get back to the mountains.“There once was the story of a social movement. He felt on his head crushed crystals and understood that war was the peace of the future”
