Try Again



When things go haywire as they often will,
When funds are low and debts are very high,
When rocky path you plod is all up hill
And you desire to smile but have to sigh;
When cares are pressing so you feel you'll drop
And life gest though with all i'ts twists and turns,
Rest if you must but don't you ever stop
For everyone of us at sometime learns
That many times a failure turns about.
You mustn't give up though the pace seems slow;
You might have won if you had stuck it out,
Might have succeeded with another blow.
So when you fall or falter, don't give in,
Just pull yourself together, try again.
