Don't Quit!

By
Real Estate Agent with ERA-The Real Estate Connection

This poem is located in one of our locals churches and I really love what it says and means....I hope you enjoy!

Dont' Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

When the road you're 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 abit,

Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

 

Life is queer with it's twists and turns,

As everyone of us sometimes learns,

And many a failure turns about,

When he might have won had he stuck it out;

Don't give up though the pace is slow,

You may suceed with another blow.

 

Sucess 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 so far;

So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,

It's when things seem worse, that you must not quit.

  

close

Patty:  Very inspiring words, especially in times like these.  Failure is a necessary evil and if we must fail from time to time in order to learn what doesn't work so we can figure out what does work.  Like my mom used to tell me, when you fall down, get up and brush yourself off and try it again.

Donna-Nobody likes to fail, but we all do and I think it makes us stronger and better if we will decide to learn from it....

This is a very good poem.  It is so true that we never know how close we are to success so we must never quit.

Failing is in the eyes of the beholder. It is only failure if you don't learn from it.
