THE WORLD IS NOT WORTH TRUSTING


We’re born into this realm of sorrows just like that;

sorrows, sadness and pains exactly after birth.

Nature cheats on us, we not on Nature.

We envision, we seek, we tend to have,

but have not;

we strive, we labour hard just in vain,

but Nature has multipli’d our sorrows.

Some born great gladd’n,

for Nature has made ‘em so;

oth’rs, suff’ring they all reap,

not that they’re lazy but Nature make’ so.

Some rich suppress;

some broth’rs help not broth’rs

and the world becomes and comes in vain.

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
