Don't Quit Poem

Don't Quit Poem

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road your trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And 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 it's twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When you might have won had you stuck it out;
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow-
You might succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than it seems to faint and faltering human,
Often the struggler has given up.
When they might have capured the victors cup.
And you learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close you were to the golden crown.

Success is 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 afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit-
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
