Don’t Quit

When things go wrong, as
they sometimes will,

When the road you’re
trudging seems all up hill,

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 it’s
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 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 so far,

So stick to the fight when
you’re hardest hit,

It’s when things seem
worse,

That you must not quit.
