What Should I Do, Now I Am Wretched – Magtymguly Pyragy

What Should I Do, Now I Am Wretched
I was a khan in my motherland,
I could deliver orders to khans,
I was a remedy for sickness,
I was a provider for the poor,
I was a source of life for the lifeless,
What should I do, now I am wretched?
I was eyes for the blind,
I was a tongue for the dumb,
I was a source of respect for my nation,
I was a whim for the loved ones,
I was Hatam Tay himself,
What should I do, now I am poor myself?
I was sweet basil in the Garden of Eden,
I was a source of gold in my motherland,
I was a gracious horse for the brave men,
I was a haze on top of the mountains,
Pyragy says: “I was safe and sound,
But now I am a palace in ruins.”
