When things go wrong as they sometimes will.
When the road youíre trudging seems all up hill.
When 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 donít you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns.
As everyone of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about.
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Donít give up though the pace seems slow Ė
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out Ė
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 youíre hardest hit Ė
Itís when things seem worst that you must not quit.
