Envisioning the path to happiness
an endless ribbon of delight;
smooth, soft, and straight,
extending effortlessly into the future,

We are disappointed
when instead our idyllic stroll
becomes a grueling mountain marathon
testing our determination
and building our strength.

We mummer and complain,
sure that happiness flows from ease,
til clambering to the summit,
tired and bruised,
we gaze around
finally understanding
that this course was not designed for comfort,
but to build us
into Champions!
