Sticking to the programme is difficult. Diet, Exercise, medication, foot care, blood sugar monitoring, blood pressure. The list goes on and on.
Don't quit says my muse as it’s not a sprint it’s a marathon. It sure feels like a marathon from time to time.
We have some blood pressure monitors to give away this week. So we’re having a poetry competition. Either write a poem or post your favorite poem before next Sunday and we will announce the winners on the 3rd of April.
To enter all you have to do is add your reply to this forum discussion. Good luck!
This is one of my favorite poems. I hope you enjoy it.
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.
Success is failure turned inside out
The silver tints of the clouds of doubt
And you can never 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.
