Gabay: ‘Xeer’

                         Gabay : ‘Xeer’ 

Foosiya waxay gabaygan kaga hadlay dhibaatada ka taagan Soomaaliya.

Xigmad gabay Cismaanoow beryahan, waanigii xidhaye
Xaraabuun markay noqotay baan, xiisihiis nacaye
Xabsi geliyey maansooyinkii, aan xurmayn jiraye
Xagal-daaca waxa iigu wacan, waan xabeebsadaye,
Ummad xoolo noqotaan intaa, xey ku leeyahaye
Xis gedmadey xisaabaha lumaan, yaab xallinayaaye
Anigoo xawaaraha jaraan, xiiq la ledahayne
Inta xidhan, intaa xaaluftaan, xaashad qorayaaye
Afar xulantiyaan waayey iyo, geesi xayta ahe.

Xarumaha markay kala xidheen, xooggi baan jirine
Waxa dhici waxaa xeel jirtiyo, waxa la-xaadhaayo
Ummaddii xasuuq lagu ridaa, malaha xaalayne
Xabaalaha walaalkii nin dhigay, wuu ku xigayaaye
Xayntii ka doogtee hadhana, Xabashi baa layne,
Hay’adaa intaa xiimayee, xabagta doonaaya
Inta badaha xuuraanta ee, xeebihii madhisay
Xabbadaa intaa kula dhacdiyo, inta Ku-xoogeysa
Inta xerada kuu oodaysee, dabinka xoodeysa
Haddii xeerku qaban laa dad yohow, waad xasili layde.

Xamdi mahad Allaa lee dad yohow, dhiga xumaantiinna
Oo xaq baynnu leennee u xula, taladu kay xilato
Oo xuduudahaan leennihiyo, degelka xayndaaba!
Midnimaa xarrago lagu helaa, kelidu waa xuure
Xulufeysi kama maaranniyo, aragti xeel dheere
Is-xanjeerta oo xumaha dhiga, taladu waa xawl’e.

Xar baa galay, xosh bay wada noqdeen, kuwi xafidi laaye
Xarakada xifaaltamidda iyo, sii xiniif-raaca
Is-xammuurka baas iyo xasarad, loo xabbada-qaato
Mid waliba inuu xooxsadey, xolod u qaateene
Haddii laysu wada xoorin laa, lama xarraameene
Xaawaley xiskay garanaysana, xiniinle waa mooge.

Waxa xerada loo madhinayaa, waa la-xadayaaye
Xakabbada waxaa loo jabsaday, waa xuruuf qorane
Weysaaqa Yurub baa xannibey, iyo xannaankeede
Inna waa xabbado iyo rasaas, lagu xereeyaaye
Xaqiiqdana kuwii garan lahaa, way xistiyayaane
Nin aan xulantideedii ahayn, bay u xidhayaane
Xujaa inagu socotoo nin ragi, wuu xantanayaaye
Xakiimow Allahayoow ADIGU, nagu xoree Diinta.

 

                              Customary Laws

O’ Osman recently I stopped creating words of wisdom
When conflict became the norm I lost interest in composing poems
I imprisoned the poetry I used to respect
The reason why I gave up is because I lost my voice (appealing for peace)
I am trying to rear a nation that turned into animals
I am in shock trying to sort out the lost intellect & the wasted resources
After I tread long distances I sleep fatigued
I am documenting the number that are jailed & those who became destitute
I could not find the best four I could select & a hero prepared for struggle
When they created barriers the strength is no longer there
The events, strategies and preparations that are happening
No one is interested in a nation that is involved in a massacre
A man who puts his brother in a grave will be the next one
The remaining that survive will be killed by the Ethiopians
The organisations that are busy all the time looking for the frankincense
The many illegal ones that have depleted the coasts (from fish)
The ones that are shooting people and those that are forcing them
The ones that are locking people in camps and setting traps
O’ people you would have been secure if the customary laws were working

O’ people thanks belongs to all, disarm
We have right choice (as leaders) the ones that are responsible
Secure our borders and land
One achieves success with unity, without it one is insignificant
Building alliances and having a fore sight is essential
Carry each other and abandon the evil, good counsel is important
Those supposed to protect the nation are decayed and are like an empty shell
Actions towards competition and taking revenge against each other
This cursed anger and aggression that lead to armament
each person carry weapons in order to use to earn a living
If we had given milk to each other, we would not have fought.
What women realise, men are not aware
The reason why the camp (the country) is emptied is because it is to be stolen The reason why the steps were broken & taken away is documented
The Europeans and their allies have blocked it
Some are bullets used to round them up
Those who know the truth are not sincere
they are electing a man who is not our choice
We are undergoing a test and an intelligent would know
O’ Allah the just one liberate us with religion
