A POEM ON " DON'T QUIT,NO MATTER WHAT"
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 gear is pressing you down a bit;
rest if you must but 'don't you quit'.
Life itself is with its twist and turns;
as everyone of us sometimes learns.
And many of failure turns about;
when he might have won if he had 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 learnt 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 can never tell how close you are;
it may be near and it seems so far.
So stick to the fight when your hardest hit;
it's when things go wrong that you must not quit.
