Fighting An Uphill Battle

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.

Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint on the clouds of doubt,
And you can never 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 go wrong that
you mustn't quit.

Too funny a coincidence - to read your blog today and see this poem. It's an 'old standard' from our family days. My brother and sisters remember this being poem being a old dogdy newspaper copy under the glass in our kitchen table. It was my mother's form of inspiration to each of us. Thanks for the memory!
