ኩስስ ያለ ኮስማና
ወለሉ አቧራ የላሰ
ያለጊዜው ያረጀ ቤት
አቤት የኔ ሰውነት
My body is like a house that has aged early,
a house that has lost its youthfulness untimely.
Though twenty plus, it has let go its vitality.
It looks as if it has hit thirty, forty, fifty, sixty.
My body is like a house that has aged untimely,
a house that must be rebuilt entirely.
I shall be born again, I shall look my age.
I shall be rejuvenated, I shall swim in any deluge.
