My Favorite Poem


My favorite poem is Don't Quit (I do not know the author). I learned this poem while going through my process for my sorority. This poem has gotten me through the toughest times of 2017 and still is. I hope this poem is able to give you the motivation that it gives me when I need a pick me up!

When people pull you down and often times they will

When the battle you're fighting seems all up hill

When your funds are low and your debts high

When you're laughing although you'd rather cry

When you feel yourself slowing down a bit

Stop...

Take a deep breath...

But don't you quit

Success is failure turned inside out

the silver tint in the cloud of doubt

You can never tell how close you are

You may be near when it seems afar

So stick to the fight when your hardest hit It's when things go wrong when we must NOT quit

My next favorite poem is Invictus by William Ernest Henley. I learned this poem while going through my process as well. This poem taught me how to stay strong and regardless of what is happening you are in control of the outcome or how you plan to react.

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the master of my fate,

I am the captain of my soul.
