Once

I prayed for wisdom,
God said “Wait,” and taught me patience.

I prayed for wisdom when I had grown a little older,
God said “Wait,” and helped me through school.

I prayed for wisdom once,
God said “Wait,” and opened my eyes to the world around me.

I prayed for wisdom,
God said “Wait,” and revealed the joy of music.

Again I prayed for wisdom,
God said “Wait,” and gave me friends.

As I grew older,
I prayed for wisdom many times,
and each time, God said “Wait,”
and gave me first one job, then another,
followed by many others.

Then one night as I was praying,
God asked me,
“Would you like some more wisdom tonight?”

He’s a sneaky dude sometimes.
