According to Google Translate

The inspiration to use Google Translate comes from my secondary school Spanish teacher Miss Qureshi, who always warned us against using it.

Today I am going to go to a
museum to go to work;
greet those living things there,
light and shine.
To forget the past
and imagine the future.

Today is my job to read a book,
recall everyday life, life and
ordinary person.
Write letters and create new ideas.

Today I have painted my work,
to measure and share the pages
of the book.
Make a rhino squash,
before drinking with water.

A self-portrait.
An abstract picture.
A mask.

Today I have created a job.
