All that I asked for, was a bit of encouragement,
And all that the world gave was, pure discouragement,
That I may realize God, I asked fervently for wisdom,
But was instead shown the world, God’s own kingdom.
To conquer the world, I asked for boundless might,
My thoughts were effortlessly subdued, by the world’s plight,
To express my limitless thoughts, I asked for feelings,
I was given a complex life to understand its meaning.
To merge in Him, I asked guidance from the Divine Light,
But was instead directed towards the darkest night,
All that I yearned for, He did effortlessly refuse,
So that He could fill me, with His Love so profuse.
I asked for devotion, so that I could realize Him,
I was bluntly told, that my chances were grim,
I asked God, for all that was needed by me,
I was instead conferred with all that was deserved by me.
