Don’t Quit

Sharing to you here a very inspiring poem by an anonymous poet who is spot-on to say Don’t Quit no matter what we are going through!

So, without ado, here is the Don’t Quit inspirational poem:

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 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 may 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 in the clouds of doubt,
  • And you never can tell how close you are,
  • It might be near when it seems afar;
  • So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
  • It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Keep the faith and inspiration.
