You Must Not 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 strange with its 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.

So don't give up though the pace seems slow.

You might succeed with another blow.

Success is just failure turned inside out,

The silver lining on clouds of doubt.

And you never can tell how close you are,

You might be near when it seems so far.

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

It's when things go wrong that you must not quit.
