See it Through ~ Edgar Guest

When you’re up against a trouble,
    Meet it squarely, face to face;
  Lift your chin and set your shoulders,
    Plant your feet and take a brace.
  When it’s vain to try to dodge it,
    Do the best that you can do;
  You may fail, but you may conquer,
    See it through!

  Black may be the clouds about you
    And your future may seem grim,
  But don’t let your nerve desert you;
    Keep yourself in fighting trim.
  If the worse is bound to happen,
    Spite of all that you can do,
  Running from it will not save you,
    See it through!

  Even hope may seem but futile,
    When with troubles you’re beset,
  But remember you are facing
    Just what other men have met.
  You may fail, but fall still fighting;
    Don’t give up, whate’er you do;
  Eyes front, head high to the finish.
    See it through!

I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
