I would love to be obedient without fail
And make my life a smooth sail.
No chiding, harsh words and an ear for all advice,
So that I am not caught in any vice.
I would love to remember all things without a skip,
Not let any word by my ear slip by and let it trip.
Memorize all songs, poems, formulaes and definitions,
As achieving high marks is surely one of my missions.
I would love to control my emotions,
Not let them create any commotion,
Not jump or shout at every excitement,
However large may be the incitement.
I would love to love everyone dearly,
Let everyone understand me clearly,
Not create any misunderstanding,
And not let anyone feel I’m commanding.
I would love to do much, much more
About that I am very sure,
But God must be having some other scheme
Which once I know, am sure will make me beam.
