410. The Strength Not To Ask
Should I get down on my knees and pray for the Gods to forgive,
The many mistakes that I make each and every day that I live ?
Beg for them to take away my pain, and give me perfect health,
Remove from me my poverty, shower me with gleaming wealth ?
Is it time for me to make amends, for each indiscretion to atone ?
Have I been punished long enough, for the evil seeds I've sown ?
Do I have the right to ask the Gods to place me in their alliance?
Or do they demand that I depend upon my own self - reliance ?
Is the path I walk upon a solid structure, built from my own fate ?
Will I fall upon the slippery trail on which with uncertainty I skate ?
Shall I be selfish and beg the Gods for help with every tiny task ?
No, what I seek from Them is the strength not to have to ever ask !
