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
