Overcoming Adversity Part 2 - Poems

Peace and Love

I wanted to add on to what I was saying about overcoming adversity.In addition to our master teacher we have the love of the creator and angels. It is like the moment you feel overwhelmed if you hang in there you will see a breakthrough right around the corner. I know now that I am here to be Divine Light , Love and Inspiration so I have to BE it . YAY ! Here is a poem by Edgar Guess he is one of my favorite poets . He is kind of before my time so my dad told me about him years ago.

Don't Quit
By Edgar A. Guest

By Edgar A. Guest (1881-1959)?
  

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 everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won if he'd stuck it out,
Don't give up though the pace seems slow,
You might succeed with another blow.

Often the struggler has given up,
When he might 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 clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar,
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.

Here is another awesome one called IF by Rudyard Kipling
