When things go wrong, as they sometimes will...

In an earlier post, I talked about the poetry of life. I was given the following and I thought I would share. I think it points out that we need to think about living

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will

When the road your 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 its twist and turns

As everyone of us sometimes learns,

And many a failure turns about

When she might have won had he stuck it out;

Don't give up, though the pace seems slow;

You might 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 she might have captured the victor's cup.

And he learned too late, when the night slipped down

How close she 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 worse that you mustn't quit

What is the poetry of your life at this time? Are you thinking about quitting or success? If you are thinking about quitting then I would encourage you to stay with it for a bit longer.
