Don't Give Up


Life gave you another opportunity
so just make the most of it
giving up is never the solution
to solving any of your problems

If you come across a dead end road
make a u-turn and head into a new direction
life has its ways of teaching a few lessons

Don't quit when life gets rough
you have fallen from the top
understand that it become tough
when you decide to throw in the towel

Don't give up, stand up in fight
I know it's easy to just walk away
You've had enough of them nights
where you couldn't go another day
quitters never win
it's best for you to stay

just stick it out and see it through
If you seek to win, face the challenges
that have presented itself to you
life is a battle, success goes to those
who fought hard until the very end

Poem of the Day

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
