See It Through Poem by Edgar Albert Guest

See It Through

Rating: 4.1


When you're up against a trouble,
Meet it squarely, face to face;
Lift your chin and set your shoulders,
Plant your feet and take a brace.
When it's vain to try to dodge it,
Do the best that you can do;
You may fail, but you may conquer,
See it through!
Black may be the clouds about you
And your future may seem grim,
But don't let your nerve desert you;
Keep yourself in fighting trim.
If the worst is bound to happen,
Spite of all that you can do,
Running from it will not save you,
See it through!

Even hope may seem but futile,
When with troubles you're beset,
But remember you are facing
Just what other men have met.
You may fail, but fall still fighting;
Don't give up, whate'er you do;
Eyes front, head high to the finish.
See it through!

I cannot understand why people insist on posting irrelevant things like the one below. This is a poetry site and this comment box is for reviews, not a venue for such senseless antics. The poem is excellent in composition, brilliant in its message and inspiring in its content. The flow and style spontaneous and smooth, making it a delight to read.
