The "rough" and "tough" times

The pain
The loss
The hurt
The lows
The lies
The tears
The trials
The hurdles
The failures
The mistakes
The challenges
The heart-aches

When you are in the
Thick of the moment
As unfair as they seem
As painful as they feel
As trying as they may be
As hopeless as they make you  feel
As purposeless as they seem life to be

They are all indeed
A blessing in disguise
As they teach you so much
About yourself, 
About people,
About the world and 
About life
Than any of the good times ever will
