The Riddle - Poem by Gabina (Gabby) Gomez
Listen to this, all you people.
Open your ears, all who live in the world-
Common people and important ones,
Rich people and poor ones,
My words will speak wise sayings,
The insights and thoughts I have carefully considered,
I will turn my attention to a proverb.
I will explain thy riddle with music of lyre.
Why should I be afraid in times of trouble,
When slanderers surround me with evil?
They trust the riches,
And brag about their abundant wealth.
No one can ever buy back another person
Or pay him a ransom for his life or health.
