Through rugged paths as we pass
And by the tests of life when we tire
Know, it's to make us glitter like brass
Just as a rod of iron is forged in fire!
Remember, the wisdom we have earned
Was never got through easy and facile ways
Our strength, not without trials, garnered
When we indolently relaxed on sunlit days
Vital it is how we respond to life's adversity
Here we have more of cares than cheers
If we sit immobilized by misfortune's gravity
The joys of life will slip unnoticed through our fingers
