A Prayer

[To God]

“I’ve asked you for two things.
Don’t keep them from me before I die:
    Keep vanity and lies far away from me.
    Don’t give me either poverty or riches.
        Feed me only the food I need,
            or I may feel satisfied and deny you
                and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’
            or I may become poor and steal
                and give the name of my God a bad reputation.
