When Things Go Wrong

by Karen
(Canada)

Hi

Here is something that really helped me when times were very dark and I needed something to remind me not to give up.

When I decided to start my own cooking and recipes website, CookingNook.com, I wanted much of it to revolve around budget meals and cooking. During economically difficult times, I still wanted to have healthy meals, but on a budget and I assume that is important to other people too.

I hope you enjoy the poem.

Best of luck,

Karen


When Things Go Wrong

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 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 sometimes learns,
And many a fellow 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 came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It might be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
