2013 May 20: Faith for Destiny Living

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,

when the road you’re trudging seems all up hill,

when the funds are low and the debts are high,

and you want to smile, but you have to sigh.

When care is pressuring down a bit,

rest if you must but don’t quit,

Life is queer with its twist 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.

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 but it seems so far,

So, stick to the light when you’re hardest hit

It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit

Never despair when life seems meaningless,

because the will always be

something to restore your faith in living

Written by my late father – Mr. Samuel “Sweetsam” Legobye on a piece of paper.

I came across lots of piece of papers when I was cleaning and inspecting his wardrobe.
Later I burned them cause we didn’t need them.

But I found this one so interesting and I typed it to keep it for my records.
