When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill.
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns.
And many a fellow 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.
Often goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man.
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor's cup .
And he learned too late when the night came down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
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 when it seems afar.
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.
Shairi hili says it all kwa watawala wanaopuuza nguvu ya umma, wanaobeza uwezekano wa kutokea mabadiliko, wanaoungulia mioyoni lakini wanataka ionekane haiwezekani. Lakini pia ina ujumbe mzito sana kwa wakandamizwa wanaohimizwa kukata tamaa na kuaminishwa kuwa mabadiliko ni ndoto.
