When it rains, it always pours,
During troubled times, even smooth seems coarse.
Fear not any impediment,
For a definite purpose, it is meant.
Feel not sorry, but be proud of adversity,
Pull yourself up, but don’t wallow in pity.
All these sorrows are a temporary phase,
Sooner, they’ll automatically erase.
Your own abilities, why do you demean?
You can achieve what none has ever seen!
Keep the light of faith burning still,
All your ambitions, God will fulfill.
Just keep going and make yourself strong,
Things will fall in place, before it is long.
