Kuchiri kuchema

Kuchiri kuchema kuri kwega here?
Machenere akadaro, Vhisachi panhamo!
Kana zvave zvekutsvaga mugaranhaka,
Tsiyo dzakazorwa nemiromo mitsvuku,
Zvowonge chipoko nemisodzi yenhema!

Kuchema senge mutambo wepwere,
Kusingaoni uyo angouya ari maoko,
Apunyaira rwendo kukubatai maoko,
Mhere inokwetsurwa zvine sarudzo,
Kune bedzi auya akabata chingwa.

Pasvika mukwasha wenyikamukanza,
Pakati pemhere’bva yombosendekwa,
Kutsvaka mubvuri wekumisa motokari,
Ane sikorosikoro yake obvisa mberi,
Zvemhere zvosimudzirwa mbaimbai.

Zvino zvoonge makwikwi pamhuri,
Vana vanyamunhu kuda kushamisira,
Kuti ane mhuri yakatsvindisisa ndiani?
Ko pwere dzinotsvaga chii parufu?
Dzorasa muswe kuswetuka chitunha.

Zvikanzi vemhiri simudzai maoko,
VeMerika vakati toita zvekusimuka,
Vemuno mukwasha afuma kunokama,
Iye pano ari kuvhiya mbudzi yepiri,
Kana usina mari chizvinyararira.

Varamu chikwee sevari pamuchato,
Mumwe adirwa mvura ine makoko,
Vavakidzani vemushakabvu nazvo katya,
Kubara kwasahwira zvainenge mhepo,
Ndicho here chavanoti chizvinozvino?

Nharaunda zvino yongokwenyana!
Chinguri yabvira kutaura nemaziso,
Vamwe vaedza chibhende nemadimikira,
Kuti regai kungwarangwanduka pasina,
Ari pano akafa ochonywa shure nehuku!

Zvino zvichabatsirei kutenga maruva?
Kuita mabiko pamberi peafa nenzara?
Kuuraya mombe vawengi vapfachure?
Bhokisi remari rekucherera muvhu?
Siyai zvenyu honye dziite madiro!

Unorara sei

Uchiziva wakandinyepera,
Kuti uchave neni narini,
Pese paitsika dzako tsoka,
Ndaisawe chinhambwe bodo,
Tichirarama tesakasika nyika,
Ndaiziwei kuti zvichapera?
Kukuona kuchanetsa kudai?
Zvakatanga angori mazuva,
Panopano yave kamwe pagore,
Zvave pachena wave nezvimwe,
Zviri nani muupenyu hwako,
Zvavawe nyikamukanza kudai,
Makore zvino oita kupindana,
Kana kubata zvako runhare!
Dai ndakaziva zuva riye?
Kuti raichazowe rekupedzisira,
Ndakakutsvoda chaiyo yakakosha,
Inoiziva vani, chikanganwahama,
Bva yangova fungiramumoyo,
Handina kana wekuturira,
Zviri pasi pehana yangu,
Kwangowe kutsi kwehope,
Gara zvako vakaziva wangu,
Musi wauchaomerwa neupenyu?
Dzoka ndikupe makomborero,
Unondiona kuya kumatongo,
Pamutohwe pandakaradzikwa.

Manditeya

Chii zvino chamavavarira?
Kunditarisa nebandi reziso,
Ndazviona kare makanditeya,
Yakakura seyi yandakapara?
Kusunga rundaza pandinofamba,
Muchimirira kuona pandinova,
Mugozoti hezvo zvataireva,
Pandaiti tiri kutamba nabvu,
Nyamba muri mushishi kukava’vhu,
Kunditosvora ndishaye chiedza,
Ndamirira shamhu ine munyu,
Kutaura kuno itori pamushana,
Kubva zivai kuti kuva kwangu?
Hazvirevi kusimukira kwenyu,
Kupembedza n’anga ichabata mai,
Kufara kwegudo panofa murindi,
Rakoshiwa ndiye zvakare murimi!

Iwe umire papi

Ndiyo nyuchi kutsunzutira,
Kufamba paruva rimwe narimwe,
Kukoromora itwo bedzi tunonaka,
Zvishoma nezvishoma kutakura,
Chitarira mavara uone kutsvinda!
Painofamba pese kuyevedza,
Kana wayo muridzo kuteerera,
Kubva mabasa ayo inhapitapi!
Bvunza avo vanoseva neuchi.

Zvino hona nhuzvi zvainota,
Haioni kunaka kwakaita nyika,
Chero pakati pebindu remaruva,
Iri mushishi kutsvaga zvakaora,
Yajaira kumhanyira kuchimbuzi,
Kumuka nhiriri, chidyavanhu,
Dusvura, kuponda vapenyu,
Yoswera nasahwira honye,
Kwachinonhuhwa chidembo,
Iyo kushata nekutarisa!

Dukuduri wakafa

Hona vanhu, hona vanhu-we!
(Kamwe kakati – vaneiko, vaneiko-we?)
Kamwe kakati – vane tsenza, vane tsenza-we!
(Kamwe kakati – kumbira tipivevo?)
Kamwe kakati – hatiroyivi here?
(Kamwe kakati – huroyi hwacho huri payi?)
Kamwe kakati – huri mudukuduri!
(Kamwe kakati – dukuduri wakafa!)
Kamwe kakati – haagarwi nhaka-su?
(Kamwe kakati – kuita magarirei?)
Kamwe kakati – simuka tiende-we?
(Kamwe kakati – tiende kupiko-we?)
Kamwe kakati – kunoona uviri-viri hunoenda gova

Ndashuwa kuyaruka

Motomuka hwandambe zhizha rino,
Zvakwakanaya, sunga maviri bedzi,
Uyu osungawo maviri madhonza,
Iwe pamberi kutara mitsetse yembeu,
Uyu otevera mushure meanokandira.

Parinopisa rerudziyakamwe,
Kumurai pamwe, mudzizorodze,
Imi mogara mubvute remuMango,
Mai vanouya neputugadzike hobvu,
Nechaenga chizere mutakura.

Modzoka kumunda mosadharara,
Moimba tsotsa kurerutsa ndima,
Usingazivi manzwi imbira mumoyo,
Ndaona twana twepapapo kukoma,
Twabvira kare kumhanya nebani.

Mai vogunun’una, vana misikanzwa,
Kubva nhasi hapadyivi rinopisa,
Mukadzi mukuru neshamhu mushure,
Vapinda pfumvu kutukutira ruzhova,
Toseka zvedu nhamo kunga rugare!

Ivo vakomana zvino havadzoki?
Zvavasoenda kare ruzambirambira,
Kuchiri kukokorodza mombe kwega?
Kune mapere, hazvidi kusvipirwa,
Mai hana yaramba kugadzikana!
