I have been carrying this tattered little card around for as long as I can remember.
It's usually tucked away in a wallet or pocket of a purse...even in the back pocket of my jeans years back.
I forget about this little card with it's wonderful wisdom,
sometimes for years.
It never forgets about me though.
Whenever I am in need of these words the most,
this little card appears.
Today I was looking for my Costco card that I had left in a wallet I had not been using,
and there on top of the other items was this card.
Now I had already took out the "important" stuff from the wallet weeks ago,
not even noticing this life reminder.
But today I needed these words more than ever,
and I am sure that is why it, appeared once again,
just as I was ready to throw in the towel on my dream.
I know we all have times when we want to quit, when we do quit,
so today I wanted to share these words from this little tattered card with you:
When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road your trudging seems all up hill,
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 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,
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You may 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 your hardest hit,
Its when things seem worse,
That you must not quit.
Have a Splendid Sunday and please share this little motivation with anyone you know, including yourself, that may need it.
