Don’t Quit!

woman stands on rock raising hand feeling grateful of life
by Anne McKeown

I love this poem, I don’t know who wrote it but it speaks volumes to me and I want to share it with you!

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 odd with its twists and turns,

As every one of us sometimes learns,

And many a failure turns about,

When we might have won if we’d stuck it out.

Don’t give up, though the pace seems slow –

You may succeed with another go.

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.
