Did you ever wonder?
If in other lives you did wander,
Maybe I was a Nazi tearing Europe asunder,
Could I have been a part of burying all those Jews the ground under…?
Or was I a Roman conqueror?
Jews and Christians alike I would have enslaved,
Could I have been one of those that was quite depraved,
Or again could I have been the one that was a bit more behaved…
Was I a Spanish conquistador?
Killing Inca’s & Mayans so poor,
Did I destroy a civilization that knew of mankinds past lure?
Without that destruction, could they still now endure…?
This life I am paying back my debt,
For all the bad things I did that I now regret,
Wish I do that I do never find out, in this life let me forget,
All the things I did do in the present life that could my karma upset…
