"Don't Quit" - An Inspirational Poem for Saturday, October 27th

Don’t Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will
When the roads you’re trudging seem all uphill
When the funds are low and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh
When care is pressing you down quite a bit
Rest if you must, but don’t quit

For life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns
And many a failure runs about
When he might have won if he’d stuck it out
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow
You may succeed with another blow

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor’s cup
And he learned to late when the night came down
How close he was to the golden crown

Success is just failure turned inside out
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
And you never can tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems so far
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit
