A prayer of the afflicted

Hear my prayer dear lord 
For life's too expensive 
That i can't afford 
I created prosperity 
But i did not have any 
I showed them love 
But they hated me cruelly 
I loved freedom 
But i was not free 
I had eyes 
But i couldn't see 
Remember my oppression 
Remember my affliction 
Control my heart 
And help me tread a good path 
Remember me oh God 
Be my guide 
Don't put me to shame 
But make me a good fame 
And a great name 
So that at the end 
My life will be a legend
