Life on Earth – a furnace

Updated on March 11, 2017

Life on earth is like a furnace

In which we are tested in all earnest

In its fire we are heated

Time and again this process is repeated

Be you on the road or on a throne seated

No one in life is spared

For this we must always be prepared

In a moment joy turns to sorrow and sorrow to joy

Life play's around with us like a toy

It's for us to learn

To right from wrong discern

This should be our main concern

Events of life cannot be controlled

By saints and seers we've been told

Accordingly ourselves we must mould

So from life's furnace we come out shinning like gold!
