Don’t Quit. A poem from way back when…

Talking of inspiration, here’s the poem I have hanging on my wall in front of me – It’s called 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 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 worse that you mustn’t Quit.
