Thought-out world

This world is too considered,
It will calculate your every track.
It will give you much, but once, no doubt,
In a moment, all them, will take back.

This world is too considered,
If someone wants – on you – to play a trick,
Never beg for mercy from the world,
What you sow before, so you will reap.

A human-being,
Calculate your life,
What are you able to give the world in short?
If you can to find a lay reply,
You will also become a separate world.
