Owu de, obiara mpɛ sɛ ɔbɛte ho asɛm, na ebinom mpɛ sɛ epue wɔn ano mpo. Nanso, ɛda amansan kɔn mu; ɛyɛ yaw, na etwa te sɛ sekan.

Owu wɔ hɔ yi, ɛnkokwaw, ɛnkanka ne sɛ afa wo maame, wo papa, wo yere, wo kunu anaa wo ba. Ɛmmɔ nkae, na etumi tu n’ani si abusua so. Owu biara nso nni hɔ a ɛnyɛ yaw, na owu sɛe fie.
