Try Try Again Poem

Be encouraged by a try, try again poem. You succeed in life when you don't quit when you don't give up. You can always try again, one more time, perhaps a different way, or perhaps with some help, but what is most important is that you do try again. As Thomas Edison once said, "Our greatest weakness lies in giving up." When we don't attempt to try again it truly is a weakness. And, Nick Vujicic clearly states what happens when we stop trying: "Defeat happens only to those who refuse to try again."

The poems here all encourage us to try again, perhaps a different way or using a different method, but always try again if you want to find success!

  1. Try Again
    Poet: David V. Bush

    When you've tried and failed and lost,
    When astray your plans are tossed,
    Other days are just ahead;
    Other men have fought and bled;
    Others oft have tried and said,
    Try, try again!

    When life seems an empty state.
    When you pause and question fate.
    Other men have heaved a sigh;
    Other men have longed to die;
    Others, too, have paused to try —
    Try, try again!

    When you've cast your die and failed.
    When your star has waned and paled.
    Other men have lost their way;
    Others stuck and won the day;
    Others now in wisdom say.
    Try, try again!

    When the world's been cold and rough,
    When you meet each harsh rebuff,
    When misfortune's flailed you blue;
    Circumstances dogged you, too,
    Then there's one way left to you —
    Try, try again!

  2. Keep on Tryin'
    Poet: Unknown

    Wipe off your chin, pull down your vest;
    Allow nothing to ban your way,
    Fight harder still to win the day,
    Then things are bound to come your way.

    Don't claim that fortune passed your door
    And gave your lucky neighbor more.
    You'll find Old Lady Luck is for
    The man who works and don't get sore -
    No matter how the rain may pour.

    If hard fate deals you a slap,
    Don't curl up like a yellow sap;
    Knock all obstacles off the mapy
    An show 'em how a man can rap.

    When 'gainst the tide turn on more stream;
    Any dead fish can float down stream.
    To breast life's currents, take the tip:
    It takes a live one, full of zip,
    That nothing, short of death, can whip,
    Just keep on tryin'.

  3. Try, Keep Trying
    Poet: Daniel C. Colesworthy

    Have your efforts proved in vain?
    Do not sink to earth again;
    Try, keep trying:
    They who yield can nothing do;
    A feather's weight will break them thro';
    Try, keep trying:
    On yourself alone relying,
    You will conquer; try, keep trying.

    Falter not! but heavenward rise!
    Put forth all your energies;
    Try, keep trying:
    Every step that you progress
    Will make each future effort less;
    Try, keep trying:
    On the truth and God relying,
    You will conquer; try, keep trying.

    Ponderous barriers you may meet,
    But against them bravely beat;
    Try, keep trying:
    Nought should drive you from the track,
    Turn you from your purpose back;
    Try, keep trying:
    On yourself alone relying,
    You will conquer; try, keep trying.

    You will conquer if you try,
    Win the prize before you die;
    Try, keep trying:
    Remember, nothing is so true,
    As they who dare will ever do;
    Try, keep trying:
    On yourself and God relying,
    You will conquer; try, keep trying.

  4. Keep Trying
    Poet: Eben E. Rexford

    If boys should get discouraged,
    At lessons or at work,
    And say, "There’s no use trying,"
    And all hard tasks should shirk,
    And keep on shirking, shirking,
    Till the boy became a man,
    I wonder what the world would do
    To carry out its plan?

    The coward in the conflict
    Gives up at first defeat;
    If once repulsed, his courage
    Lies shattered at his feet.
    The brave heart wins the battle,
    Because through thick and thin,
    He’ll not give up as conquered -
    He fights, and fights to win.

    So, boys, don’t get disheartened
    Because at first you fail;
    If you but keep on trying,
    At last you will prevail;
    Be stubborn against failure;
    Try! Try! and try again;
    The boys who keep on trying
    Have made the world’s best men
