Don’t Quit




Assalamualaikum,

During my secondary school, there was one poem that i like most.
I always read the poem again and again….especially when i felt down or very sad. 
At that time, i think i can remember almost every single word in the poem.
As time goes by… and of course, i am very busy with my daily life,  i totally forgot about the poem.
However, yesterday….. when i was looking for some of my old stuff, i came across a card with this poem written on it
So, i want to share it here…and read it again
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 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 everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow-
You may 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 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 that you must not quit.

Thank You & Wassalam

    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 that you must not quit.
