Why do we have adversity, some may ask,
When life seems like an endless, uphill task?
Life can be a struggle, it's true,
And sometimes, we don't know what to do,
Adversity is a gift in disguise,
An opportunity to grow and rise,
To teach us lessons we wouldn't learn,
If every path we took was an easy turn.
It's the obstacle course that we must navigate,
To learn from our failures and appreciate,
To discover our true selves and find
The strength to leave our fears behind.
Adversity may feel like a weight,
But it's a crucial part of life's fate,
A challenge we can embrace,
And an opportunity to find grace.
Through adversity, we learn empathy,
Compassion, and thanks for what we have,
And we realize that the struggles we face
Are stepping stones to help us embrace
Adversity reminds us we're not alone,
That we're just flesh and bone,
It humbles us and helps us to see,
The beauty of life's complexity.
Through adversity, we learn to thrive,
To keep going even when we don't want to survive,
To discover God’s strength and power,
And bloom like a beautiful flower.
So let us welcome adversity with open hearts,
And see it as a chance to play our part,
In a world where obstacles and strife,
Are the very things that sharpen the knife.
For adversity is a blessing in disguise,
A chance to grow and become wise,
And in the end, we'll see it clear,
It's the very thing that brings us near.
So embrace adversity, my friend,
For it's a teacher and a guide,
Leading you to your highest self,
With God’s help reaching for the sky.
