These trying times demand it,
No halcyon days ahead.
But all hard work brings profit,
Stand up and refuse to dread.

As a diamond remains a stone
Without the drill and the cutting,
Pleasures based on wealth alone
Robs man the chance of persevering.

True measure of success in life
Is hinged on wisdom and on prudence,
Courage, patience through the strife,
Facing hardships with resilience.

For out of adversity's crucible
Come strength of character and will,
And a man discovers he is able
To reach his goals, his dreams fulfill.
