Born in Ethiopia;
Grown up near Libya.
Never has mother tongue;
That shows him belong.
He is powerful, but coward;
For what he did for others;
Received no award;
Has no respect to fathers.
He was without nationality;
For he had no clear identity.
Though he is a son of mothers;
None of them were care takers.
He spent times for nothing;
His task was just collecting.
Any thing on his way;
As expert on pushing away.
His mother was hopeless,
For he impair her no less.
He deserted her worth,
He was like nature wrath.
But lucky he got thought;
His identity is being brought.
He begins to help his mama;
Promised to lounge in a dam.
Mother now aired big sigh;
For she begins to use Abai.
