Don’t Quit

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 all is pressing you down a bit, 

Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Success is failure turned inside out;

The silver tint on the clouds of doubt;

 

And you can never tell how close you are;

It may e near when it seems far,

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

It’s when things go wrong that you must not quit.
