I’ll feed the cats
I won’t talk back…
To be a good boy-
If you give me this one
Is my only need;
I’ll never ask for anything again…
Please, please, please.
This is my response to the Trifecta writing prompt challenge. It is inspired by, and in honor of, my younger son who turns seven this week. Kids his age used to want their two front teeth for Christmas (he didn’t get that…in fact he lost two more teeth), but nowadays, they want expensive things. He’s been begging for an iPod Touch for over a year. Of course we can’t afford to buy one, so we told him to start saving. He did and, with his birthday and Christmas money, he will finally have enough money to buy it.
I remember making bargains with God (promises I never could keep) if He’d just give me what I wanted. I know now that all the “prayers” that were ignored, were really just “no’s” given in my best interest.
For the challenge, we were asked to write a 33 to 333 word response using the following word and definition: Intention (noun): (a) what one intends to do or bring about; (b) the object for which a prayer, mass or pious act is offered.
