Hardships (A Poem)
In our lifetime,
we go through so much.
The pain and the trials never end.
God has tested us so many times,
given us so many choices,
between right and wrong;
good and bad.
And yet, I thank him,
because these problems have unknowingly shaped me.
They have made me into something better,
they have made me strong, quick-witted and brave.
Crossing the bridge looked easy,
but then I realized that if it hadn’t been for God,
I wouldn’t have reached the bridge in the first place.
These hardships are nothing but our enemies,
which we must fight to reach our beloved destiny.
An eternal place; called Paradise,
where one never dies.
And frankly, I’m glad that I’m getting these hardships,
because I know that God gives the hardest battles,
to his strongest believers.
He didn’t forget us,
in fact, he is always watching us.
Even now, he’s smiling,
knowing that we remember him,
no matter what we we’re going through.
He isn’t to blame if something evil or bad touches us,
it’s up to us to change the way we live.
He gave us our freedom,
all we have to do is understand how to use it.
Once more, let me tell you,
these hardships are nothing but a rare piece of diamond,
that none but the faithful get.
