Who Are You? - Poem by Edgar James Momoh

Umm, I'm...sorry I don't mean your title or name
Who really are you?
Oh! I mean, who are you on the inside?
Your titles and name are easy to tell by your associations
And your prosperity tells all about who you are on the outside
But it takes adversity to tell who you really are on the inside

Yes! Adversity and tough times are the true markers of your inner tendencies
It exposes what you truly value and abhor
And lets the world see into the inner chambers of your heart
Because adversity strikes with composite impact...
That reveals the opposite side of your personality

However, adversity and tough times also present opportunities for change
It helps us to reassess our priorities and values
And makes us discover untapped talents and potentials in our lives
Because adversity strikes with composite impact...
That present challenges on one hand and opportunities on the other
