Perhaps Life Here

Perhaps it is the case
That life here
Is meant to be a tougher adventure
Than you assume it must be—
And that you could and should
Learn more than seems convenient—
And overcome more challenges than
It seems one should have to overcome.

And perhaps the outcome of it all
Is greater than you could imagine—
For those who have embraced
More of the challenges,
Improving themselves even though
They were not forced to do it.

We have choices.
And perhaps life here
Is not designed to be maximized
By routinely defaulting
To the easier choices.
