PERSEVERED is persevering

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 person turns about

When they might have won had they stuck it out.

Don't give up though the pace seems slow-

You may suceed with another blow.

Often the struggler has given up

When they 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-

So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit-

It's when things seem worst that you Mustn't Quit!!!
