THE PRAYER OF A DONKEY
by Carmen Bernos De Gasztol
O God, who made me to trudge along the road always,
to carry heavy loads always
and to be beaten always !
Give me great courage and gentleness.
One day let somebody understand me …
that I may no longer want to weep
because I can never say what I mean
and they make fun of me.
Let me find a juice thistle …
and make them give me time to pick it.
And Lord, one day, let me find again
my little brother at the Christmas crib.
This poem is a useful model for writing others.
