Life takes us to the limit
over and over again
opposition confronts
rolling pebbles smooth
polish our rough edges
bumps and gulfs, tests
at every turn define
our character, its metal
the metaphor of war
is basic to all religions
overcome, endure
patience in affliction
humble prayerful, God
takes you by the hand
leads from tribulation.
