Just Never Give Up


                                                     (Image Source: http://marathontrainingacademy.com)



Run when you can,
The race has just begun,
Your legs all strong,
Trust nothing can go wrong.

Walk if you have to,
There is still a lot to do,
Tiredness holds you in its fist,
You need to get out of this dark mist.

Crawl if you must,
Move on with faith and trust,
Just a few steps more,
And you will land at the victory shore.

Just never give up,
Even though the road ahead turns rough,
Go ahead with the zeal to win,
Emerge out of the waves, smiling and laughing.

Run when you can,
Walk if you have to,
Crawl if you must,
Just never give up.



This poem is written for Carry On Tuesday and the Prompt is "Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must, just never give up".

  1. Powerful. Lovely message. Sometimes when things are going so badly, it's so easy to just give up, isn't it, but, that's when the desire to succeed has to overpower the desire to quit. That's what makes a winner. Great capture of the prompt.
