A Prayer to Athena
I wished upon a star to one day find happiness, but I got nothing except misery.
I wished upon a star for peace and love on my birthday, but I always got hurt.
I felt I was not meant to find happiness and then it appeared to me.
I couldn’t find happiness while I was unhappy with myself.
I joined a religion that offered me the chance to redeem my happiness.
And so every night I pray to the Goddess Athena to guide me on the right path.
I pray each night and thank Athena for my redemption.
Now all my dreams can come true as long as I remain honest with myself.
I feel that I don’t need anything else in my life,
other than to fulfil all my dreams and wishes.
It would be nice to find that special someone,
but I know that when the time is right they will appear in my life.
And I will feel complete and truly happy.
But for now I have everything that I will ever need,
and the rest will come when the time is right.
I have seen a glimpse of what is in store for me,
and I feel deep in my heart that it is destined to come true.
Just like every other glimpse of the future that I have seen.
I thank the Gods and Goddesses for giving me this gift.
It has been such a blessing,
and I pray that it never gets taken from me.
