Never Quit

Last week I had the opportunity to write for a new client, but a few days in, we mutually agreed that it was not a good fit. That was discouraging to say the least, but looking back I know it was the right thing to do.

That started me thinking about the hard times that you go through, and how easy it is  to give up on your dreams. I found this poem that has been so encouraging to me, and hope it  helps someone else along the way. This poem was written anonymously.

Never 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 queer with its twists and turns,

As every one 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 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 slipped down,

How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned upside down;

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 must not quit.
