Wake up!

By : Abduxaliq Uyghur Turpan, 1921

Hey, poor Uyghur, wake up,you have slept long enough,

You have nothing, what is now at stake is your very life.

 If you don’t rescue yourself from this death,

Ah, your end will be looming, your end will be looming.

Stand up! I said, raise up your head, no more slumber,

Behead your enemy, spill his blood!

If you don’t open your eyes and look around,

 The end of your frustrated existence is certain.

 Already, your body looks lifeless,

Is that why you are indifferent to death?

 You remain unmoved by my calls,

do you want to perish this way, without coming to your senses?

Open your eyes wide, look around,

Think well about your future,

 If you let this one chance escape,

Tomorrow will be nothing but sorrow, nothing but sorrow.

My heart pities you, o my Uyghur,

My companion, my brother, my relative,

With a burning soul, I am calling out to you,

But your are not hearing me, what is going on?

 One day will come, and you will regret,

That day you will understand the reason of my calls.

You will say “alas!”, but it will be too late,

Then you will realize what Uyghur (the poet) meant.
