Over My Shoulders I Carry the World

Over my shoulders I carry the world,
a disintegrated veil covers my head;
one that scarcely conceals my loneliness.
The weight is backbreaking
and I'd sooner let it break my fingers
than let it break my vow.
 
As I carry on, my complaints
stay placid and fall upon deaf ears,
even as I kneel onto this holy ground
and bleed all the blood housed in flesh;
I do not let even an ounce slip out.
 
I am expected to carry the world
from here to hell and back
until the heavens come crashing down
and the earth swallows us whole.
Yet I yearn for a life that is not my own,
I yearn for the pleasantries I am denied,
I am bitter that my life was destined for one
and that it has been written in stone.
 
Why must I alone carry the world
while none toil night and day away?
why must I feel utterly alone
when the world is filled with souls?
At the end of it all what do I receive in return
for keeping my vow, for all of this time?
 
Gasti' cadi cacaa', ¡gasti', gasti', gasti'!1
gasti' hruni, guendanabani' zaluuxhe,2
ne Bido' que hrusaana garuti'.3
 
And so I carry the world over my shoulders,
only the wind carries my sorrow to the South,
and in the South they know I bleed and cry,
but nevertheless I carry the world.
 
  • 1. I gain nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing!
  • 2. it doesn't matter, life will soon end
  • 3. and God abandons no one.
  • Gasti' cadi cacaa', ¡gasti', ...:

    I gain nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing!

  • gasti' hruni, guendanabani' zaluuxhe:

    it doesn't matter, life will soon end

  • ne Bido' que hrusaana garuti'.:

    and God abandons no one.
