Sometimes life shakes our belief's foundations,
testing our faith's strength in times of trouble.
Our human core easily deflates,
and we let hope pop like a bubble.
But these misunderstood trials mold our souls,
creating wisdom from human mistakes.
Our blind minds often become bitter
because we fail to see the treasures a heartache makes.
We judge ourselves upon our own failures,
looking at yesterday instead of tomorrow.
So we waste our lives living in the past,
only to miss the cleansing bath of today's sorrow.
Life teaches us by letting us choose,
allowing the consequences to slap our faces.
But we forget these lessons we learn,
until death forces us to leave our earthly places.
