The Only True Prayer

"Gods, give me strength to grow up, and let it be as gentle as it may. With this world, that will be rough enough."

We acorns have the opportunity, not the guarantee, to grow into great oaks. Will we take the challenge? Will we last it?

We need comrades in arms and Gods who will support us.

Rest assured they want us proud, and ripened, and seasoned with deeds and hard-won victories. But we must show our mettle.

For those nervous with the title "the only", this is a dramatic figure of speech, and has no connection to religious exclusivism. There are always many ways to do things right (which never excludes there being many ways to do things wrong, either).
