Catching – Magtymguly Pyragy

Fate has spread its net throughout this world,
Catching all living creatures no matter what.
It captured many poor, set up an army,
It is driving them all through the mountains and plains.
No one can run away, it will catch you no matter what,
It will attack you, strike you, and hold you by your collar,
It will throw your body into an underground dungeon,
It will mix your body with the black soil.
What a time it is, what intentions fate has,
It will find its way to the city of the soul,
The destiny of the son of Adam is such that he gets mixed into mud,
It then will be beat down with a hammer.
Magtymguly, struggling with his eyes blind-folded,
He suffered, rolling in the grave,
Travelling in all directions of this transient world,
Fate is swallowing all of the people.
