a poem for us

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 never 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 of won if he'd stuck it out;
Stick to your task, though the pace seems slows-
You may succeed with one more blow.

Success is failure turned inside out-
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt-
And you may 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 worse that YOU MUSN'T QUIT.

This poem is really great, and so true. Reading it , I could feel the little sparkle of lightbulbs going off in my head when the truisms hit home.
A poem chock full of "Ah Ha" moments.

Thank you

Hi Judy,
Thanks for the Poem, really meaningful. Well I'm back on line with hopefully a routine. I moved on the 22nd and did a lot of boxes and all so I.m finally back in onederland. This is because I didn't stop moving up and down the stairs cleaning and fixing up the house. Installing the tempo to have less snow to remove. Love the new neighborhood.
Now that things have calmed down. I have to start exercising regularly. No excuse I have a basement full of equipment. With a small tv and VCR.
Congrats on your son's engagement Kathy.
Laura hope your feeling better!!!
Kim and Kathy you crack me up with you wit? spelling yuk

Ah, Helene, darling.... Kathy's son is now married. It's now her Daughter that is engaged, lol.... You've been gone a bit, so I just figured I'd help straighten you out on that.

Either way, it's nice that you are back in the fold and looking to improve your fitness plan. I'm glad that you like your neighborhood. Sounds like you have moved into a good place and a better place for your personal peace of mind.

totallywiggedout replied to mefirstforever's response:
Helene, I know you are in or very near Quebec. What is your personal "native" tongue? Do you speak French as your first language and English as the second language?

It's sometimes hard to remember that the internet makes it a very small World and that there are possibly many who lurk but don't feel that they have a good enough grasp on the English language to join in. It would be a sad thing not to feel able to join in this community for a language barrier, you know?

I'm glad you are here, Helene. No matter what language you speak.

Thanks Debbie,
I got side tracked last year. But I did try to keep on track even if it was only to maintain. It worked and now I hope to move forward and get to the 80s sooner than later.

That's weird. I posted my response to this 2 minutes after Judy first posted it. Now that post is sinking down the discussion page farther and this post double shows up?
