I have reserved myself for myself and those who are mine.
I go where life takes me, and stand with those who I like.
I resent Your commission, because I try to avoid suffering.
I look out for myself and my family; I have laid You aside.
I hunger and never have enough, yet I am full of myself.
I "need" everything that I see advertised - I fear deprivation.
I hold on to all I have accumulated, for I worked hard for it!
Even so, O Glorious and Blessed One,
They-the-Three, give Themselves to me,
While claiming me as Their own child?
I don't know why, but let it be.
The vow I make here on Earth,
Has been stamped in Heaven.
