Theoretical Framework
Background of the Study
"He who does not know how to look back at where he came from will never get to his destination"
Mi Ultimo Adios is a poem that tells us how beautiful the Philippines is and how Rizal wants us to learn from our past and to see the truth about how the world view us.
Mi Ultimo Adios, written before Rizal died, which was in December 30, 1896. Mi Ultimo Adios was not entitled by Jose Rizal but by Mariano Ponce and his fellow reformist entitled it "Mi Ultimo Pensiamento" which means my last thought.
Dr. Jose Rizal was visited by his mother, Teodora Alonzo, and his sisters Lucia, Josefa, Maria, Trinidad and Narcissa, and two nephews. When they took their leave,
an alcohol stove was given to Narcissa by the guard
, Rizal told Trinidad that there was something in the small alcohol stove.

Concepts of Existentialism

A philosophy concerned with finding self and the meaning of life through free will, choice, and personal responsibility. The belief is that people are searching to find out whom and what they are throughout life as they make choices based on their experiences, beliefs, and outlook. And personal choices become unique without the necessity of an objective form of truth. An existentialist believes that a person should be forced to choose and be responsible without the help of laws, ethnic rules, or traditions.
Absurd– The notion of the Absurd contains the idea that there is no meaning in the world beyond what meaning we give it.
Facticity - This is a concept defined by Sartre in Being and Nothingness as the in-itself, of which humans are in the mode of not being.
Authenticity - Authentic existence involves the idea that one has to "create oneself" and then live in accordance with this self.
Rizal’s wisdom and perspective upon writing his last poem “Mi Ultimo Adios” reflects in many edges in present. His love for the country and many advocates to fight for the country, to have freedom of expression and criticism are still established nowadays. Like as Rizal and many national heroes are fighting for our country, we give significance to what they did. Knowing the past and be updated to what is the issue now, is what Rizal wants to be in ourselves as he did when he is living. His point of view can relate in present by just opening our eyes, see what is going on, be aware to happenings, that we should speak what’s in our mind and stood by our own feet.
Relevance of Mi Ultimo Adios to the Present
The youth is forever the next chapter in our story as a Filipino people. However, in our attempt to prove ourselves as Filipinos and as human beings, we are in a constant struggle with teaching the next generation that they cannot simple write our next chapter, but make the words worth reading.
