My Prayer to God

a poem by Ramya R

Let me not be in too much pride
May I not be taken away for a ride.
Let me see things in true light
Make me do things that are right

Let me do things with all my might
With right ambition in my sight
Show me the hope show me the ray
Be it a new beginning every day

Let me not be swayed by temperament
Make me do my daily assignment
With a sense of duty put into my mind
Towards me, be little kind

When I commit mistakes, prick me lord
Punish me on the spot so hard
Behind false face let me not hide
Take away my ego and my pride

I ask you only this, My Lord,
Don’t give me rare gifts or rewards
Give me only what I need for life
And your love throughout my life
