Love Through Hardship Love through hardship is a reoccurring theme seen in many different types of art, whether it’s a movie or a painting. Love through hardship is even seen in everyday life.
Tim McGraw’s poem “Don’t Take the Girl” is a prime example of love through hardship. For example, “Stranger came and pulled a gun, grabbed her by the arm said “If you do what I tell you to, there won't be any harm,” and Johnny said "Take my money, take my wallet, take my credit cards here's the watch that my grandpa gave me, here's the key to my car, mister give it a whirl, but please don't take the girl” (McGraw 1) This song shows that even through adversity love prospers and defeats tribulation. Furthermore, when a man or woman says something like this for their significant other it shows how much they love and care for them. Another example is when Time McGraw says, “Doctor says the baby's fine, but you'll have to leave 'cause his momma's fading fast, and Johnny hit his knees and there he prayed, take the very breath you gave me, take the heart from my chest, I'll gladly take her place if you'll let me, make this my last request, take me out of this world, God, please don't take the girl” (McGraw 1). Love does not fade when things get rough. The man in the poem is willing to sacrifice his life for hers, and that proves that love flourishes through all travail. That’s why “Don’t Take the Girl” by Tim McGraw is a perfect example of love through hardship.
