Don’t Quit

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 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.

Often the 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 slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside…

Adventure

On  May 15th , 2015,  I decided to take a bus ride to the northern side of the country .  It was a wonderful feeling to see something different for a while since I lived on the central side of the island.  The ride was a long ride. I had gotten on the bus at around 1.20 pm and didn’t get off the bus untilled 3.30 pm. The bus ride wasn’t bad but it was long . I even felt a sleep and wake up  and was still on the northern side of the island .  Part of the northern side of the island is a scenic place but as you go further in,  it not as scenic  as the east coast side of side of the island . In all, I  didn’t mine that the drive was long. It was relaxing and it was  nice to get out the house for once just to see this beautiful island that I live on

TORONTO – The “Humans of New York” blog has been sharing stories of New York City residents for over four years. But now the blog is helping provide once-in-a-lifetime experiences for inner-city youth.

That goal was met in less than an hour.

It all started when Stanton posted the portrait of a young boy on his blog. When asked who has influenced his life the most the…
