Don't Quit, by Harvey Conroy

Published by: Mary B on 21st Oct 2017 | View all blogs by Mary B

 

When things go wrong as they sometimes will

when the road you're trudging

seems all uphill,

 

When money is 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.

 

Success is failure turned inside out,

the silver lining of the clouds of doubt.

You can never tell,

how close you are,

it may be near,

when it seems so far,

so stick to the fight

when your hardest hit

 

IT'S WHEN THINGS SEEM WORST

THAT YOU MUST NOT QUIT

    It is when things go wrong and we come out the other side that makes us tougher....
