Dont't Quit

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill
When the funds are low and debt are high
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh

When one is pressing you down a bit -
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twist and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns.

As many fellow 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.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man;
Often the smuggler has given up,
When he might have captures the victor's cup;

And he learned too late when the night came down
How close he was to the golden crown
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver twist of the clouds doubts.

And you never can tell how close you are
It maybe near when its seems a far
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit, -
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.
