An Epic Sidama Poem: A Guidepost for Freedom and Justice

2 Sep

What more guidepost do we need other than the poem from our legendary singer and song writer below. A wake up call?

Womu seemma, roori;

Kaayu eena, roori;

Seemma taalo coyiri;

Amate ka’ani baxisari nooni??

Ane ama, geercho jawa, roori;

Seema taalo coyi’ri;

Ani womu seemma;

Ane giwisae lame hayyo adha;

Qaaffinsanitanna bosalita ma’na;

Boosalo giweema goxa gadaddana;

Dirifatumaro giira amaddana;

Qaafiichcho giweema mariwa maddanna;

Bushurini xaade seyanyote abanna;

Ani womu seema qaafichcho giweema;

Hiito qaafinsayie mammichcho taenna;

Mayira dugugurso ma aniya reena.

    Elegant activism of young sidama singers in refusal of any unfair amalgamation with ethnic groups with whom we never share any social ties. It is aimed at showing that sidama nation is such a great nation and capable enough to stand by itself…so any irregular and ill-intentioned attempt to denigrate the diginity of our heroic nation is not warranted and equally flawed!!!!

      Exactly Sidama Times. Forced amalgammation and brutalisation of our civillians for resisting the barbaric oppression will not last for ever. Freedom is inevitable!
