Omomura Egesora

NOTE: This poem is written in my native language (Kisii). The Kisii people live in Western Parts of Kenya (former Nyanza Province).

Kae omwana ekebago,
Tacha koba ekeb’ago,
Maambia aimokie obokombe,
Aburugere chinsiaga.

Erio mambia ae chiombe,
Na mogoroba aimokie egekombe,
Kogenda konywa amabere,
Na gokombi amakombi.

Ase engencho ne’yaye,
Igo akonywa atari gosoka,
Erio mambia kagosoka,
Igo akororekana egesora!

Akoiyeria emete,
Obutora boronge,
Orangeria Barongo,
Banyebeka irongo,
Eyende baira Birongo.

Moisonde naira chibao Nyabara Ibere,
Bakamoa emerongo ebere,
Korende tagogetigwe nonya,
Aya onsi nase’enengecho atamaeti amariko!

Ma’iga bono oiranire esukuru,
Nario mambia atanga’ainwe naende,
Na mambia ende agende mache ng’umbu,
Gakoirana abe omorai,
Gose omoraria,
Arete oborabu sobo,
Na gotoa ogosemeria,
Oywo nere omomura egesora!

My Japanese Girlfriend

I am sitting here,
Everything seems to be right here,
But that is not the case,
For something is amiss,
What could be the mess?

My heart beats faster,
My mind so restless,
I am dumb,
My hands so numb,
My legs can’t move,
The eyes out of focus,
Seeing the same image in everything.

All these troubles caused by one situation,
That I met at the auction,
I can’t believe I took the action,
Because I didn’t like such actions,
I don’t know why!

Many had come my way,
I pushed them away,
But things changed at her arrival,
Glad she didn’t find a rival.

No rivalry to my Japanese girlfriend,
She is the only one,
Who knows what I need at what time,
If I need a ride,
She is right there for me,
Just a little lubrication,
Sit on and I keep it calm,
Enjoying the moment.

But oh my!
She demands too much servicing,
Being inflated all the time,
Because deflation is not a choice.

This is task is sometimes daunting,
But I will never give up,
My ego cannot allow that,
For she is too precious,
Too invaluable,
So important,
No option,
She is mine.

She is so loyal,
Making me feel royal,
So eco-friendly,
Making me friendly,
She takes care of me,
I take care of her,
So we take care of each other,
Oh this Japanese girlfriend,
My BICYCLE!
