Unbreakable People

Their will, it could bend like a horseshoe
Up or down; forcefully pulled at both ends
 But it can't be snapped or severed in two

Their spirit, a mighty axe
Welded with great force
Can't split it in half like firewood

Their fortitude, a sledgehammer 
Can't reduce it to shards of glass
It would bounce off upon impact

Their hopes, misfortune could whip it
Against a bark of a tree in rapid succession
Still, it would remain sturdy, unbroken

Their faith in God, it could drop to Earth
From mountain high, land with a thud  
And still be perfectly intact

The devil tries inexhaustibly
To test it, to break it, and fails 
Spectacularly every time
