The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from A Heap O' Livin' by Edgar A. Guest:|
If every hope were realized, and every dream
If only joy were found on earth, and no one
And never a friend proved false to us, and never
a loved one died,
And never a burden bore us down, soul-sick and
We'd yearn for tests to prove our worth and
tasks for us to do.
A Heap O' Livin'
