Hardship will leave you only once it is done teaching you.
Adversity is often feared and avoided,
I say – bury me in more!
This seed must keep growing.
Don’t hand me the easy route,
I don’t want to see a day through without progression.
Keep testing me,
Keep pushing me further,
Keep destabilising me.
This cycle of accomplishment is my sustenance.
Giving up is like halting my breath;
I die the day I stop wanting to learn.
