Don't Quit

This has always been one of my favorite poems.  Thought I would share it with you all.  Have a great Wednesday!

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 tough 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 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 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 the worst that you must not quit.

Reminds me of our wonderful MIL! Mothers in general, I guess. How many times have you gone ahead and done something when you really didn't feel like it? Happened to me today!
