Inspirational Video - The Don't Quit Poem

Im sharing a poem today. To all of you recovering, not just from jaw surgery, but from any troubles that are your companion today. For those who have done this jaw surgery once, and then those that have had to endure it multiple times. To those who are struggling, in the physical, emotional or spiritual realms, please find courage, find the grace in dark. Find the light, and remember that It doesn't cost a thing to smile!
Carpe Diem, live consciously, seize your day!!

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 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 so far, 
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit-- 
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
