Hi, I'm a beginner to Latin and I've made an attempt at translating a piece from English but I'd like to get it checked because it probably has a few grammar mistakes. Here is the piece:

Under the burden of solitude
The weight we carry
Is love

So I'll float high
Up through the clouds
To the Moon
Where love is light
And solitary

Here is my attempt at translation:

Sub pondus solitudinis
Onus portamus
Amorem est

Ergo fluctuabo
Supra, inter nubibus
Ad luna
Ubi amor levem
Et solitarium est

Help would be really appreciated!

@jser12,
If you want to talk about Latin, it would be wise to put a Tag on the conversation that says "Latin".

Also, our resident Latin maven is George, who can be reached by Private Message on his Profile page, Here. He very likely will come around if you PM him.

@jser12,
The preposition sub takes the ablative here.
Sub pondus solitudinis -> Sub pondere solitudinis

You should include the relative pronoun.
Onus portamus -> Onus quod portamus

The predicate nominative should be nominative.
Amorem est -> Amor est

The preposition inter takes the accusative.
inter nubibus - > inter nubes

The preposition ad takes the accusative.
Ad luna -> Ad lunam

The adjectives should agree in case with the noun the modify.
Ubi amor levem -> Ubi amor levis
Et solitarium est -> Et solitarius est

The best way to get George's attention is to tag the topic "big tits."
