My Son

If God wills
I will raise my unborn son
right
so his light can shine on all.
God, bless him with insight
make him the coolness of my
eyes
Grant him wisdom in interpreting
past and present for a better
tomorrow
A humble hero
generous to the poor
adviser to the affluent
who keeps the company of Saints
who even listens to the animal’s
complaints
God, give me a son
who will bring peace to the world
If not…

God

grant me a girl.
