    Don’t Quit! 

    When things go wrong, and 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 you mustn’t quit.

    Life is queer with its twists and turns, 

    As everyone of us sometimes learns, 

    And many a failure turns about, 

    When one might have won had he stuck it out. 

    Don’t give up though the pace seems slow, 

    You might succeed with another blow.

    Often the goal is nearer than it seems to a faint and faltering man, 

    Often the struggler has given up, 

    When he might have captured the victor’s cup. 

    And he learned to late, when the night slipped down, 

    How close he was to the victor’s crown.

    Success is failure turned inside out, 

    The silver tint of the cloud of doubt, 

    And you can never tell how close you are, 

    It may be near when it seems afar. 

    So stick to the fight when you are hardest hit, 

    It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit!

    Once again I have come across my poem God gave me back in the mid 2000s. I'm so glad it has blessed countless people. Don't know how it came about a few years ago being on Facebook. I happened to see it one day while scrolling through a certain section. I was very shocked as to how it got there. Then later I remembered I had passed out some copies at this church. I think someone from there put it on Facebook. That's fine. A couple years later I was on Amazon and there was my poem on all kinds of merchandise. Many people had added their own verses. Some at the beginning, some in the middle, and some at the bottom.  I'm very pleased that God gave me the talent to write poems and songs to help others. God bless and Merry Christmas!
