Adversity brings out the best in you
It often helps to find something new -
A hidden talent or clears a doubt
Or you understand what life's about
Adversity nourishes you to become strong
It helps to reach where you truly belong
Adversity makes you tough and wise
It shows where your strength lies
Adversity is nothing but a stepping stone
To a path that seems rugged and unknown
But if you let courage be your guide,
And can take things on your stride,
Don't get dejected and continue to fight.
In the end, you'll see hope and light.
