"Most obstacles melt away when we make up our minds to walk boldly through them." ~ Orison Swett Marden

Poems for thought…

Everywhere we look we see inspiring quotes, sayings and such. Television, the internet, greeting cards, they are everywhere! Why do many of us seem so drawn to them? We turn to them for comfort perhaps when we need cheering up, or if we just need that extra push in helping us achieve our goals. Song lyrics are a perfect example. The lyrics of a song read just like a poem. I came across a poem today that I wanted to share, maybe it will be inspiring to you 🙂

Don’t Quit

By: Unknown Author

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,

When the road you are trudging seems all uphill,

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 of 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 tints 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.
