When things go wrong, as they sometimes will.
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and debts are high,
And you want to smile but 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 person turns about
When they might have won had they stuck it out.
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow –
You may succeed with another blow.
If you are sick or in pain, please don’t stop,
Before your health is back on top.
Don’t end your care, your health is near.
Don’t stop before your spine is clear.
Often the struggler has given up,
When he 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.
When health is present do not forget,
It isn’t time for you to quit quite yet,
When you are well you must get your spine checked still,
TO PREVENT yourself from becoming ill!
