Do Not Give Up

Quitting Is Not The Way

Poet: , 2012

Go ahead and quit,
If you can't see it through.
But don't come crying to me,
When quitting is all you do.

Those who start to quit,
When things start getting tough.
Start to see quitting,
As a way to get out of stuff.

They never stick things through,
And can't complete a thing.
Is this the type of person,
You see yourself being?

Quitters never win,
No matter what you've heard.
Have you ever heard a quitter,
That is picked to be referred?

Of course that would be silly,
Why would someone refer?
Someone who can't even accomplish,
They are their own saboteurs.

Next time you want to quit,
Think who you want to be.
Quitters never win,
I want more than this for thee.

I want to see success,
Surround you every day.
I want you to be happy,
And want to scream hooray!

I want you in a job,
That makes you're world so good.
I want the work you do,
Feel just like childhood.

But most of all I want,
To see you see things through.
But not because you should,
Because you really want too.

And I realize you may be scared,
That you can't see it through.
But I'm hear to tell you, you can,
Do anything you put your mind to.

"Most people give up just when they're about to achieve success. They quit on the one-yard line. They give up at the last minute of the game, one foot from a winning touch down."
Ross Perot

Don't Give It Up
Poet: Z. Vujcic, 2007

Today life gave you another slap
but don't give it up
throwing your towel in the ring
for things gone wrong, for words that sting
'cos there must be another way
you will see it in the light of another day
When everything seems sour, not in your favour
look around until you find better flavour
so, don't just give but live it up
pick up the pieces, be tough
grind your teeth and turn another cheek
don't give it up, that's exactly what they seek
It's too easy to walk away
quitter never wins so you should better stay
look challenges straight in the eye
don't say yet the last good-bye
fight like an animal in a trap
but don't give it up


"Most people who succeed in the face of seemingly impossible conditions are people who simply don't know how to quit."
Robert Schuller
