Don't quit till you reach the goal

Hi friends, I would like to share this very old poem which I have received from my favorite person. I don’t know who wrote this poem, but I am really grateful to the writer for writing such an inspiring poem.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will

When the Road you are trudging seems all up hill;

When the funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile when you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit,

Rest, if you must — but don’t quit.

Life is queer with twists and turns,

As every one of us sometimes learns,

And many a failure turns about,

When he might have won had he stuck 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 too late, when the night slipped down,

How close he was to the Golden Crown.

Success is failure, turned inside out,

The silver tint of the clouds of doubts;

And you can never tell how close you are,

It may be nearer when it seems afar,

So stick to the fight, when you are hardest hit,

When things seem worst that you mustn’t quit.
