We all must face

At some point in our lives

An insurmountable force

Impossible to push aside.


That challenges our strength

Our character 

And our pride.


An experience of moral conflict

To test human will,

It ventures beyond comfort:

A new pain is instilled. 

The most profound combination

Of emotion and thought;

Mind, body, and soul

Take one fatal shot.


The true human strength

Is questioned at this time;

Only those who are capable

Can make the treacherous climb.

Overcoming the odds

And establishing new life

What results from this triumph 

Will trump all future strife.
