Nitasimama Mpaka Unipende (Swahili Poem)

Listen to the poem Nitasimama Mpaka Unipende Nitasimama, kima cha urefu wa mbingu, na nyota zake hewani, mpaka nisimame wima. Nitasimama, kutoka kwenye uoga, wa niliyemchagua, lakini akaninyamazisha uhuru wangu. Nitasimama, kutoka kivuli, cha aliyenioa, lakini akanitia aibu hadharani. Nitasimama, kutoka kwenye mapenzi, ya niliyempenda, lakini akanilaani kwa mauaji ya halaiki. Nitasimama, kutoka kwenye ngao, za niliyemkimbilia, lakini akanikabidhi kwenye ulemavu. Nitasimama, kutoka mikono michafu, ya yule niliyemuamini, lakini...

Swahili Poem Reading: Johari ya Upendo

La azizi wangu nakupenda na heshima nakupatia, kwa johari uliyonivisha ya kunienzi na kunitukuza. Niliposhindwa kukuzalia, ulinipa mahaba tele kunionyesha uwazi wako penzi lako halina mwisho. Ndugu walipokushawish, na kukulaghai wazi wazi, kugawa penzi lako nje ulinitegemeza na huba tele. Dhahabu na almasi, yakuti na vito tele, yote hayo hayana maana kama johari ya upendo wako. Naomba baraka za mola tuendelee kupendana, atuneemeshe...
