31.

I tried to become great.
God laughed at me.
I tried to become good.
God laughed at me.
I tried to become perfect.
God laughed at me.
Finally I said to God,
"My Lord, I shall become
What You want me to become."
My Lord smiled at me and said,
"My child, now you are truly Mine,
And I am all yours."
