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 ever quit
Life is strange with its twists and turns
As everyone of us sometimes learns

And many a failure turns about
When we might have won had we 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 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 worst


"I will persist until I succeed. Always will I take another step. If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult.... I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking." --- Og Mandino
