You have to admit –
it’s overwhelming –
this task you are asking of me.
The burden is great –
all on my shoulders –
the outcome I can’t clearly see.
This has the power –
to break my faith –
and make my beating heart turn tough.
Or the opposite –
will happen inside –
and this will make my heart buff.
This is a hard test –
a sure dilemma –
what will this trial make of me?
Will I be better?
Or will I break apart?
My response defines who I will be.
