see 1st verse
I gave up the house-holders life and the wealth earned by fair ways which is required to run that life;
as there was nobody superior to me to guard me.
I lived having become your protege by my strength of penance done in previous births;
if it is so.
arthritis is inflicting pain.
be gracious enough to cure me of it.
as it drags along rolling and pulling out, inside my belly.
I fainted caught with fear.
