DONT QUIT….

I have a file of things I have collected over the years and this is a poem in that file. To be honest I don’t know where it came from but it certainly cheers me up:

WHEN THINGS GO WRONG, AS THEY SOMETIMES WILL,

WHEN THE ROAD YOU’RE TRUDGING SEEMS 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 A BIT,

REST IF YOU MUST, BUT DON’T YOU QUIT.

LIFE IS QUEER WITH ITS TWISTS AND TURNS,

AS EVERYONE OF US SOMETIMES LEARNS,

AND MANY A FAILURE TURNS ABOUT,

WHEN HE MIGHT HAVE WON HAD HE STUCK IT OUT;

DON’T GIVE UP THOUGH THE PACE SEEMS SLOW,

YOU MAY SUCCEED WITH ANOTHER BLOW.

SUCCESS IF FAILURE TURNED INSIDE OUT,

THE SILVER TINT OF THE CLOUDS OF DOUBT,

AND YOU CAN NEVER TELL HOW CLOSE YOU ARE,

IT MAY BE NEAR WHEN IT SEEMS SO FAR;

SO STICK TO THE FLIGHT WHEN YOU’RE HARDEST HIT,

ITS WHEN THINGS SEEM WORSE, THAT YOU MUST NOT QUIT.
