See It Through Poem

Here’s another great Edgar A. Guest poem.

See It Through Poem

When you’re up against a trouble,
Meet it squarely, face to face;
Lift your chin and set your shoulders,
Plant your feet and take a brace.
When it’s vain to try to dodge it,
Do the best that you can do;
You may fail, but you may conquer,
See it through!

Black may be the clouds about you
And your future may seem grim,
But don’t let your nerve desert you;
Keep yourself in fighting trim.
If the worst is bound to happen,
Spite of all that you can do,
Running from it will not save you,
See it through!

Even hope may seem but futile,
When with troubles you’re beset,
But remember you are facing
Just what other men have met.
You may fail, but fall still fighting;
Don’t give up, whate’er you do;
Eyes front, head high to the finish.
See it through!

    This, like the poem “can’t” serves as excellent reminders that it is better to go down giving it your all than to fail half heartedly. A half hearted failure is of no value to anyone.

    Hello Shawn,

    A wonderful poem to remind us all that nothing stays the same, the bad things will fade away and new challenges will come our way to once again brighten our days.

    Life is a wonderful journey, with trials and tribulation, lessons that need to be learned through life. We encounter happiness and sadness, new adventures to conquer; events that make us laugh and others bring sadness with a tear to our eyes; Also there are times when some of our tears come from overwhelming joy. If we are to count all these they come from the best part of us, our emotions that come from the heart and soul and the spirit that evolves in us all.

    May beautiful sunshine brighten your day.

    I keep forgetting to promote my book, smile!
    Oh well, what will be will be….
