The Don't Quit Poem


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.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor's cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out--
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can 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.


here with tears , lost but not forgotten
is incredible the love you show me.

thank you

24 more for this inactive suffering alcoholic .
Thanks for being here, erfra!

Committing to 24 hours sober.

8:12 PM in the forest.

Efra, thank you for that inspiring poem. And Kris beautifully stated. Efra, it's late here in California and I am just happy that you didn't give up on SR! I seriously believe we do need each other. That's how Bill W. Started this thing....one alcoholic talking to another. Each individual matters to the whole of "us" seeking and maintaining sobriety ODAAT. I'll look forward to seeing you here tomorrow night.

Thanks Venus and Dee

3 weeks ago I woke up after a sleepness night feeling a total mess.

Today I woke after a solid night's sleep looking forward to the day even though I have work to do!

I have so much more optimism and hope it really is worth pushing through it! Thanks to everyone on here I couldn't do it without you all

Another 24 for me
