The Road Uphill

We take a short break from our contributions from Holland Park School, with this poem sent in by an Anonymous contributor.

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 strange with its twists and turns

As everyone one of us sometimes learns.

And many a failure turns about

When you might have won had you 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 tint on the clouds of doubt,

And you never can tell just how close you are,

It may be near when it seems so far

So stick it out when you’re hardest hit

It’s when things seem worst, that you must not quit
