Never Say Fail

A poem that encourages us to never say fail. Daniel Colesworthy's poem reinforces that our attitude toward failure can play an important part in whether we succeed or we fail. Never underestimate the role that your attitude plays in determining your perseverance and passion. Failure is too often found by people just giving up. Always remember if it was easy everyone would be doing it!!

As poet Colesworthy notes: "In storm and in sunshine, you'll onward and conquer, and never say fail."

The poet declares that onward progress in whatever one endeavors does not just take place when all is well; when everyone just seems to fall into place, and when the winds of time always blow in the right direction. The real test of perseverance occurs at those times when the obstacles, issues, roadblocks, or failure strikes the hardest. The real sign of onward movement comes when the winds are blowing the strongest against you, not with you. Let this famous poem be one that encourages you to keep your thoughts and actions moving with positive strides.

Never Say Fail
Poet: Daniel C. Colesworthy

Keep pushing - 'tis wiser
Than sitting aside,
And dreaming and sighing,
And waiting the tide:
In Life's earnest battle,
They only prevail
Who daily march onward,
And never say fail.

With an eye ever open,
And a tongue that's not dumb,
And a heart that will never
To sorrow succumb,
You'll battle and conquer,
Though thousands assail:
How strong and how mighty,
Who never say fail!

The spirits of angels
Are active, I know,
As higher and higher
In glory they go:
Methinks on bright pinions
From heaven they sail,
To cheer and encourage
Who never say fail.

Ahead then keep pushing,
And elbow your way,
Unheeding the envious,
And asses that bray:
All obstacles vanish,
All enemies quail,
In the might of their wisdom
Who never say fail.

In life's rosy morning,
In manhood's firm pride,
Let this be the motto
Your footsteps to guide:
In storm and in sunshine,
Whatever assail,
You'll onward and conquer,
And never say fail.

Two more poems by Daniel C. Colesworthy about failure but having a motto that moves you on and about continuing to move forward:

Poet: Daniel C. Colesworthy

With Onward! your motto,
You never will fail,
Should Poverty track you,
Or Envy assail.
No obstacles hinder,
No trials molest,
Whose aim is still upward,
With truth in the breast.

The shadows that mist-like
Hang under the sky,
And hide the bright prospects
Behind them that lie,
Will fold with the darkness
Their wings for a flight,
And glory and beauty
Give only delight.

The sorrows you cling to
"Were never designed
To tax or to fetter
The high-gifted mind:
'Twas made to soar upward
With angels and God,
And not to be trammeled
On the valley's cold sod.

Then onward! See blazing
Away in the sky
The motto so glorious,
"Look up, and not die! "
'Tis the language of angels,
Of men who can feel,
When the world they would startle
In thunder appeal.

Go Forward
Poet: Daniel C. Colesworthy

Go forward, press onward:
'Tis wiser, by far,
Than fretting and sighing
In fear where you are.
Whatever your calling,
Your aim or pursuit,
In hand with true Wisdom,
You'll bear precious fruit.

A Putnam and Warren
What made them to be
Remembered forever
By the good and the free?
'Twas active exertion,
Indomitable zeal,
And minds that were tempered
With wisdom and steel.

Go forward, press onward:
Oh, live not in vain!
There's wisdom, and honor,
And glory to gain.
The path is before you,
You've only to choose:
You win if you're active;
If slothful, you lose.

Go forward, press onward:
A moment's delay
May thicken the shadows
That rise o'er your way.
This waiting and wasting
The summers that fly
Will leave you a sluggard
To linger and die.
