Crucible

Crushed, my youthful dreams are withered
By the unfeeling hands of Fate,
Which hold me fast within their grip
To test my mettle and my worth,
Squeezing desperation from my lungs,
As I writhe in the viselike grasp
Of those deadly fingertips.

Broken, I am reduced to powder
Just as dust returns to dust;
Defeat screams in my face as I am
Surrendered to the flames of strife,
Which consume my fear and weakness
Until only precious jewels remain,
Preparing me to conquer life.
