Down Life's Road by Anneliese Garrison, RN
© written 9/8/96


Anyone can quit, but can you start?
Anyone can start, but can you finish?

You've got to hold on to your dreams,
even when they are nightmares.
Hold on to your goals, even though
you stumble and fall.

Anyone can cry, but can you smile?
Things will be alright in a little while.

You've got to finish what you start.
You've got to start and never quit.

Pick a direction and follow the one way sign.
When you come to the four way stop--go straight.

Anyone can quit but can you start?
Anyone can start, but can you finish?

It doesn't matter where you start.
It doesn't matter where you finish.

So smile, and never, never quit.
