A Poem for Happy Father’s Day

By admin | June 21, 2009

I like this poem and the video made using inspirational photos and a remix of “Going the Distance” soundtrack from the movie Rocky.


Don’t 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 every one of us sometimes learns

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 tints of the clouds of doubt

And you can never 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.

Wishing everyone a Happy Father’s Day!
