Don’t Quit

I posted this twice in 2012, and today, Michelle Marie commented on my post that sometimes it seems all uphill and it reminded me of this, so I had to repost this again.

……………………

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 every one 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.

Businessman Rolling Boulder Up Hill

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 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.

  1. Needed this today. I’m not usually a poetry reader but this one read like a little story. And I love your photo credit: The Internet. I always hate that part, too. 😀

    • It’s because I use a lot of my own photos, and I didn’t want anyone to think I had created this. Don’t Quit ios something I always remember from my childhood

  2. Reblogged this on Tell me about it and commented:
    Wow A, this made me cry in a good way of course! I was thinking today what happens when life’s cheerleader needs a cheerleader? I guess God sends one for me cause here you are posting just what I needed! It’s amazing when you actually think of quitting everything how powerful the downward spiral. I once cried for 3 months solid and wondered if the sadness would ever lift and it does! This time though I was being brave and took an unexpected hit, knocked my flat down. I thought to myself this morning I’m getting tired of getting back up I believe I’ll stay here. So thank you for posting this! I’m going to copy it and put it in my wall right now and every time I look at it I’ll smile and think how my sweet friend A came to the rescue! Much love and great appreciation to you A! 💗
