Don’t Quit

Don't Quit Poem - Figures of Speech, Important Lines and Appreciation Questions

Don’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 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 don’t you quit.

 

Life is queer with its twists and turns,

As every one of us sometimes learns,

And many a fellow turns about

When he might have won had he stuck it out

Don’t give up though the pace seems slow

You might succeed with another blow.

 

Success is failure turned inside out

The silver tint in the clouds of doubt

And you never can tell how close you are;

It might be near when it seems afar;

So, stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,

It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Edgar A.Guest
