A PRAYER

by Ma.Theresa G. Rondina
(MAGSAYSAY, SINGCANG, AIRPORT, BACOLOD CITY)

I ASKED GOD FOR MANY THINGS SO
SO THAT I MIGHT ENJOY LIFE
BUT NOW I KNOW THAT GOD GAVE ME LIFE
SO THAT I MIGHT ENJOY THINGS

I ASKED GOD TO MAKE ME A LEADER
SO THAT OTHERS MIGHT LEAN ON ME
BUT GOD GAVE ME WEAKNESS INSTEAD
SO THAT I MIGHT FEEL THE NEED TO LEAN ON GOD

I ASKED GOD FOR BEAUTY OF FACE
SO THAT I MIGHT BE ADMIRED BY ALL
BUT GOD MADE ME SEE THE BEAUTY FADE
IT DOES NOT LAST LONG AFTER ALL

I ASKED GOD FOR MANY FRIENDS
SO THAT I MIGHT ENJOY THE COMPANY
BUT GOD MADE ME SEE HOW FRIENDS CAN CHANGE
SO THAT I MIGHT KNOW
THAT GOD IS THE BEST FRIEND OF ME

I ASKED GOD FOR RICHES
SO THAT I MIGHT HAVE EVERYTHING NICE
BUT GOD GAVE ME POVERTY INSTEAD
SO THAT I MIGHT BECOME WISE

I MIGHT NOT HAVE FORGOTTEN WHAT I ASKED FOR
BUT I FEEL I HAVE RECEIVED THE BEST
MY UNSPOKEN PRAYERS WERE IN TRUTH ANSWERED
I FEEL I HAVE BEEN TRULY BLESSED

Nicely Done. I love how you write about the way we pray for one thing, but get a better thing instead.
