faced roadblocks and obstacles. But as the verses will reflect it we persist and persevere we can reach success.
If you strike a thorn or a rose.
If it hails or if it snows,
Taint no use to sit and "whine"
When the fish ain't on your line;
Bait your hook and keep on tryin'
When the weather kills your crop.
When you tumble from the top,
S'pose you are out of every dime,
Gettin' broke ain't any crime;
Tell the world you're feelin' prime —
When it looks like all is up,
Drain the sweetness from the cup.
See the wild birds on the wing!
Hear the bells that sweetly ring!
When you feel like sighin' — sing!
I watched a little sailing boat
With crimson wings outspread-
So small - and yet so switch and sure,
It plunged its way ahead-
Through wind and spray and driving rain
Towards the harbour light-
Unshaken by the blinding storm -
Like some great bird in flight...
And so it is in human life
With all its squalls and gales-
It's not the storm that matters,
It's the way we set our sails-
Enables us to steer our course
Through hardship and distress-
And reach the peaceful harbour
Of a well-deserved success.
