Don’t Quit

Don’t Quit

I don’t know who needs to hear this…

But when my husband recited this poem for me from memory, I thought of you.

I thought how you might need motivation while tapering.

Or while on a chronic illness journey.

Or while enduring chemotherapy.

Or coping with prednisone side effects.

Those are all REALLY tough situations and I know how hard it was for me to get through, too.

So here’s a pick-me-up video to help you.

“Don’t you 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 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 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 of the clouds of doubt,
and when you never can tell how close you are,
it may be near when it seems afar;
so stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit – it’s when things seem worst, you must not quit.

Don’t Quit
