First time I came across this was when a friend (Sudipta) had gifted me a poster in class 11th or 12th. I really liked it. Its a very common one; I am sure most of us have come across it, but all the same, its very beautiful. Today don’t know how was reminded of it – so thought shall find the text on the net and put it here –
When things go wrong as they sometimes will.
When the road you’re trudging seems all up hill.
When 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 everyone 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 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.
