Don't Quit!

When my son was in training & going through a bad patch he asked me to send him this poem that one of his mates down there had been sent. I made one to put on his notice board and also laminated a smaller one to put in the top pocket of his shirt when out on exercises.

I think it can relate equally well to both the hard times during training for PRMC & actual RT training.

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.

All the best with your aspirations boys

That poem is so good, I think we can all relate to that. Great post!

Would I be ok to print it out and keep it with me. I think it could help?
