Prayer

Give me strength to run many a million miles, without stopping, without looking, without feeling.
Give me vision to look beyond the ordinary and seek the non-existent extraordinary, to be blind to pain and joy
Give me blindness to erase my dreams and a blank face to erase my expressions
Give me courage to be baited by a million and and the ability to entertain like no one else
And when I can run no more, give me a blessing in a shot, to be put down like a limping mongrel
After all, what good am I if I cannot run at all?
