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

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
