DON'T QUIT

Saturday, November 03, 2012

WHEN THINGS GO WRONG AS THEY SOMETIMES WILL,
WHEN THE ROAD YOU'RE TRUDGING SEEMS ALL UP HILL,
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 A BIT.
REST IF YOU MUST, BUT DON'T YOU QUIT.
LIFE IS QUEER WITH TWISTS AND TURNS.
AS EVERYONE OF US SOMETIMES LEARNS
AND MANY A FAILURE TURNS ABOUT
WHEN SHE MIGHT HAVE WON HAD SHE STUCK IT OUT.
DON'T GIVE UP THOUGH THE PACE SEEMS SLOW
YOU MAY SUCCEED WITH ANOTHER BLOW.
SUCCESS IS FAILURE TURNED INSIDE OUT.
THE SILVER TINT OF THE CLOUDS OF DOUBT,
AND YOU NEVER CAN TELL JUST 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.

    This is one that is so good for a graduation and have given this to our grands
Quitting solves nothing one day at a time

    That is what has helped me to lose weight is to not quit - no matter if I gain weight or eat poorly for a while. I haven't given up. Thanks for sharing this poem I really enjoyed it.

    great post - I generally see the "rude" version of this (ends with "don't tell me - I don't give a S--T.) Yours is MUCH nicer!!
