Am Travelling

I loved you but all in vain (I lost)
You left me, only to remain a loser
I died softly, tender hearted
Excitement is now a riddle, just like love
Nothing at all, may be in heaven am hopeful
I thought I was swimming, just to realize I was drowning

I’m on my way
No turning back
Am done with everything am leaving
A journey for self reliance
Because I’m tender hearted.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Translation of poem Nasafiri, further translated by Peter Mamara.

Am Traveling

I loved you, but it was all in vain. This time I lost.
You left me. I felt like the sky fell on my head.
My delight was gone. My heart was badly hurt.
Excitement is now a puzzle for me, the way love was.

I was rejected. It was a reprimand from heaven.
I thought I swam, but in fact I have just drowned.
I’m on my way through life. I hope I find new love.
I’m not going to repeat the same mistakes again.

I’m done with being dumped. I suffered enough.
I’m now on a life-journey based on self-reliance.
I’m a tenderhearted man, who needs affection.

Peter Mamara

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
