    Don't Quit

    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
    When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
    When 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 its twists and turns,
    As every one of us sometimes learns,
    And many a failure turns 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 too late, when the night slipped down,
    How close he was 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 afar;
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
    It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.

    Very nicely written Sunkan but ups and downs of life nowadays are so often and so many that one has to be very strong to abide by the saying. However, it is very encouraging and healing.

    I had read this before, Sunkan. But I like to read it again and again. It's a poem that many people can relate to. To me I find the words in quote to be very apt.
