You Must Not Quit

(Author unknown)


 

 

 

 

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 fellow turns about,
When he might have won had he 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 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 came 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 the worst that you must not quit.

    I very much enjoyed this and my oldest son and I are always trying to get my his mother to see the aspects of such poem too. We can only continue to pray that the Lord will open her eyes before it’s to late. But as always you have posted another great post,
    Keep up the Great posts!
