Üç Acayip Kelime Three Weirdest Words

'Gelecek' dediğimde,
İlk hece geçmişte kalır.

'Sessizlik' dediğimde,
Onu yoketmiş olurum.

'Hiçbirşey' dediğimde,
Yokluklara sığmayan birşey var ederim.

When I pronounce the word ‘Future’,
Its first syllable is already in the past.

When I pronounce the word ‘Silence’,
I destroy it.

When I pronounce the work ‘Nothing’,
I create something that doesn’t fit in any non-existence.
