Poems by Lakshmikanth

My prayer has been answered

a poem by

Lakshmikanth

I asked for strength
and God gave difficulties to make me strong

I asked for wisdom
and God gave me problems to solve

I asked for prosperity
and God gave me brawn and brain to work

I asked for courage
and God dangers to overcome

I asked for love
and God troubled people to work with

I asked for favours
and God opportunities

I received nothing I wanted
but, I received everything I needed

My prayer has been answered!
