Hun hala ka bor da i Mebatei L. Khongsti



Hun hala ka bor


Ha pyrthei ba beh ïa shibun ki rong,

Nga hun da i black and white,

Ha ka juk pynstyle sñiuh bun rukom,

Nga hun ban shu sad sha side.


Ha ka juk ba beh ki bam bang restaurant,

Nga hun da i jadoh ha basa,

Ha ka juk ba ki ïa beh sha KFC,

Nga hun da i dohmasi syrwa.


Ha ka juk ba ki beh sha ki juti Adidas,

Nga hun da i sneaker ba tad,

Ha ka juk ba ki beh sha ki jaiñ branded,

Nga hun da i second hand ban wad.


Hun hala i jingkotbor,

Wat prong sha kaba shu kot jubor,

Pynleit jingmut ïa iwei pa iwei i mawjam ba rit sha ka thong,

Badno badno ïalade wat ju nujor.



"Hun ha la ka bor" is an original Khasi poem by @mebatei_l_khongsti ✍️✍️
Teng teng ha ka jinglong briew ngi pyrshang ban kner ïa kaba ngim donkam. Ha kane ka rukom ngi ïaid lait noh na ka jingsyndong bad jingsan kaba kongsan ïa ka malade. 💆❤️
This poem expresses a yearning to be content with what we have. In our rush to flow with the times, we may lose sight of what is essential to the nurturing and growth of our self. ❤️💆
