When the road you're 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 don't you quit
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As everyone of us sometimes learn.
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 you're hardest hit
Its when things seems worst that you must not quit.
