Don’t Quit

Poem by Pam Fraser

Don’t Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will.

When the road you're on seems to give you a struggle going uphill.

When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.

When are is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.

Life is queer 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.

Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may succeed with another blow.

Success 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.

    I came back one poem after reading the next one just a minute ago.
    I did this because I knew what I would find and I did.
    This is a treasure poem of real value. I shall give it a 10, then I will return to the next poem and do the same. This is too complicated to explain to the masses,
    but there is a reason for doing this kind of madness.
