Hammered into Shape

Life, a hammer pounding down
we negotiate its every blow
the hardships to avoid, prosperity aimed
our souls like forged steel endure

every strike shapes us anew
each pain pushes us to bear
more heartbreaks that hurt
and tear us apart

the fire's forge burns but shapes
our capacity to bear more sorrow
transformed by trials our fight resolute
to keep on fighting to survive

yet in the end the  blows
will find us fair and true
sending us to another stage
where other hammers beat us down.
