As I walk in I speak to you,
Asking and seeking your guidance.
I pray for a day of learning:
Study, hard enough to learn in the fire
Of discomfort and change, but
Slowly and softly enough to retain
My form. To not burn and be
Reduced, but melt and be remade
Stronger. Striking while the iron is hot,
Chipping away all of my weaknesses.
Remake me in your image, I humbly
Ask of you: Make me great, for without
You there is no change, no guidance,
No purpose for me to grow into.
Thus, I pray for you, help me
Dedicate my life and work to you.
