i will not.

i will ask not for the sun and stars
for they are already within me.
i will not ask for wisdom
for that comes with experience.
i will not ask for the love of another
until i love myself first.
i will not ask for perfection
but for humility and compassion
and the grace to make it through
when the impending storm threatens to wash
everything away.
