Huzuni
(Sorrow)

Huzuni imetanda
Ya nini?
Vifo vipo
Ni kawaida
Ajali zipo
Ni kawaida
Ubabe upo
Ni kawaida
Ukandamizwaji upo
Ni kawaida
Mateso yapo
Ni kawaida
Huzuni ya nini?
Haieleweki
Haielezeki
Huzuni imetanda.

Sorrow

Sorrow envelopes
Why?
Deaths exist
It is normal
Accidents exist
It is normal
Intimidations exist
It is normal
Oppressions exist
It is normal
Persecutions exist
It is normal
Why the sorrow?
Incomprehensible
Unexplainable
Sorrow envelopes.
