World (poetry)

World, what have done to you?

World, you hit me when I came out of my mother and made me cry.

World, I was only a little baby.

World what have I done to make you

so dark

and cold?

World, you took my lord Jesus Christ away.

World, my Lord Jesus Christ will come back and take you away
