Latin.png Latin text

Dies mei transierunt, cogitationes meae dissipatae sunt,
torquentes cor meum, noctem verterunt in diem,
et rursum post tenebras spero lucem.

Si sustinuero, infernus domus mea est,
et in tenebris stravi lectulum meum
putredini dixi: Pater meus es, mater mea,
et soror mea, vermibus.
