Don't Quit

When things go wrong as they sometimes will;
when the road you're trudging seems uphill;
when funds are low and depth 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 strange with its twists and turns,
as every one of us sometimes learns,
and many a failure turned about
when they might have won had they started 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 cloud 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 you must not quit.
