Adversity Does Show Itself - Poem by Kenneth R. Thompson

To everyone in life;
Be it kings or princesses fair,
Adversity does strike.
When adversity does come,
Its worth to every heart
Is to purge out sin and dross
To offer life's new start.
With adversity the truth
About a man is known
As it shows him immature,
or, in God's way, full-grown.
Never should we simplify
Adversity's affect,
But it does bring out the worst,
Or shows we've passed its test!
