SHAIRI:AFYA NJEMA NI TUNU

Standard

AFYA NJEMA NI TUNU

afya njema

Nahesabu misumari, iliyoezeka paa hili

Najigeuza kwa tahadhari, nikimlilia Jalali

Afya njema ni johari, ni vyema kujijali

Maradhi yasikie kwa jirani, ukukose mkuki huu.

 

Naziangalia tembe, na bilauri hii la maji

Nimenyong’onyea mzembe, umekwisha ujuaji,

Kabla sijameza niombe, ziniponye nahitaji

Maradhi yasikie kwa jirani, ukukose mkuki huu.

 

Naitizama sahani, hamu na chakula sina

Asisitiza chochote tumboni, tabibu ila kazi kutafuna

Kuku, samaki na biriani, ulafi wote hakuna

Maradhi yasikie kwa jirani, ukukose mkuki huu.

Maradhi maruwani, yakipanda tawekwa baalani

Maradhi tafurani, yatowesha amani kama tufani

Maradhi subiani, yachafua roho za wenye imani

Maradhi jahanamu, ngali hai nachomwa mwanadamu.

 

Jipende ndugu jipende, jilishe halua na tende,

Matunda muhimu yapende, kabla hujalala kitanda

Mboga nazo patana nazo, kupungua damu sio mchezo

Maji ya nanasi sharubati, lahaula jitendee haki jipeti.

 

Wanga nazao pia manga, upate nguvu za kupuyanga

Protini usizitupe mitini, nyama mharagwe kwenye sahani

Mtindi, maziwa, jibini, mafuta yatia joto mwilini

Vitamini chumvi na majani, yafaa sana pia madini

 

Usile vichafu pia, donoa donoa hatma jutia,

Usinywe vileo pia, vyashusha afya nakwambia

Usichome chome pia, vingine utajanasia

Usifunue funue pia, vichafu visijeingia

 

Jioni pia kimbia, sikae sana tembea

Kutwaa tu kujilalia, viungo taja lemea

Puyanga pia tokwa na jasho

Kitambi unene miyeyusho.

 

Afya njema ni johari, ni vyema kujijali

Tuishi kwa tahadhari, tuombe nema za Jalali.

ARUDHI

Standard

 

Kina, nakipenda kina,

Kina kije kikiwa kina mana.

 

Uzani, wala siudhanii,

Uje tu kama waja, siupanii.

 

Muwala, mi nao wala wala,

Kama waja na uje mie sina shida wala.

 

Mshororo sina nao kokoro

Ila sinifunge kwa idadi nitoe kasoro

 

Ubeti usinipe shariti

Eti lazima uwe hivi la sivyo pingiti

 

Arudhi kwangu sio aridhi

Langu tungo najenga kwa kuridhi

 

Lakini, sipotoki sijue napotoka

Nakiweka kina kikija nakipenda

Nauweka mzani ukija navyokwenda

Nakata neno likiwa tamu kulinena

Nafunga ubeti kimaliza nachonena.

 

Sipotoki, kuandika yaso tamu kutamka

Sikurupuki, kughana yaso hamu kunitoka

Sisemi yenye utata, hadhira niikwaze

Sighani yenye ukata, hadhira niipumbaze.

 

Mapingiti, mabutu lau sio masivina

Mavue, manini ila yajieleza kwa kina

 

Sifungwi sijilegezi

Sipingi sipuuzi.
