Too Soon To Quit – When you’ve given a task all the effort you can And obstacles mount which alter your plan, Human nature advises you just to retreat, To simply give up and face your defeat. But through your despair you must never omit A belief that it’s always too soon to quit. So close you came in years gone by To achieving success in the endeavors you tried. But the nearer you came to reaching the top Impatience won out and you chose to stop. Had you only continued you soon would have known The rewards of reaping what you had sown. With age comes wisdom and the vision to see That you simply must truly persist to succeed. Through faith you discover that hope is not dead, What you long for awaits you straight up ahead. And the lesson you learned was hard to admit, Forever and always it’s too soon to quit.
