The poem is below.


The wonder of life
that each obstacle becomes a lesson
Wether overt or covert 
by  increased exertion of all powers at hand
something will speak a solution
A problem stopped
in a manner that appears to be perfect
and out of this illusion is created
a new diversion for self- discovery

Fantastic!!!!! When there are no obstacles we grow complacent, but when faced with mountains to climb, we grow stronger, we grow.

Suzanne, a clever right that reminds the reader that often the treasures of life are hidden in difficulty. The journey, not just the destination, is something to be cherished! Great poem, I loved it!
