When things go wrong as they some times will;
When the road you are trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high;
When 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 sometime learns;
Don't give up though the pace seems slow;
you might succeed with another blow.
and many a failure turns about
when he might have won had he stuck it out;
Success is failure turned inside out--
the silver lining 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 get worse that you mustn't quit!
