Quare de vulva eduxisti me?
qui ultinam consumptus essem,
ne oculus me videret!
Fuissem quasi non essem,
de utero translatus ad tumulum.
Numquid non paucitas dierum meorum finietur brevi?
Dimitte me ergo, ut plangam paululum dolorem meum:
ante quam vadam, et non revertar, ad terram tenebrosam
et opertam mortis caligine,
ter miseriae et tenebrarum,
ubi umbra mortis, et nullus ordo, sed sempiternus horror inhabitat.
