The Wall and How it Will Come Down

What do you do when you've hit "the wall" When there's no stamina left and your hope has stalled? Do you scream at the top of your lungs, Do you wring your hands that have been many times wrung? Do you shake your fists at the heavens or do you take a step back and learn the lesson? This lesson that can be learned only through endurance and clinging to the calm assurance That this present problem will test your mettle So that in the future you will not settle For anything less than complete victory Despite the odds and despite the injuries Just as a blacksmith strikes the steel until its shape and strength have become ideal So too are we "struck" and formed divine by these troubles we have been assigned
