Interview with God
Before my birth I had an interview with God.
He said: You shall be born a woman.
I answered: Your will be done.
But if I can’t be soldier
give me the strength of one.
He said: You shall be good.
I answered: So be it.
But don’t let mean people hurt me,
give me the wisdom of an elder.
God raised His eyebrow.
He said: Your soul shall shine.
I answered: Amen.
But please, don’t make me mirror for the outer light,
make my soul candle burning at both ends, I will shine brighter.
And God smiled.
