Don't Quit... Dedicated to Kits4Kids Foundation

This post is dedicated to...

and to all the caregivers, teachers, parents and family members of those with special needs...

written by the voice of ADHD and Bipolar Disorder...
The road less taken
we took not by our choice
but ordained to us
the path that you've wanted us to take
just like anybody else
we find it difficult to cope.

It's a journey

a dull and difficult journey to many
don't quit on us as we've never given up
stay with us and walk with us
it may seem weary but press on with us
for the journey is long.

As the saying goes,"There's always a light at the end of the tunnel."

"Yes, we do believe in that, too."
Don't quit on us when we couldn't follow your tempo
we may be slow, but we're moving at our own pace,
we may slur in our speech, but we're communicating with you,
we may stumble and fall, but we're taking a bold step forward
Don't quit on us...

Life is a challenge
Ours is a challenge even in simple things

We think differently
We're in our own world
It's a 90-degree climb
Climb with us for the journey will be sweet
We learn new things from you
and we bet you learn more from us
Don't quit before we reach the peak.

Every laughter is accompanied by yours,

Every move is made better with yours,
Every tear is wiped away with your hands,
Every cry is an echo to our frustration,
Don't quit on us when the day seems dull and empty.
Don't compare us with anybody else
We're special for God made us so
The fun and excitement that others may bring to you
We might not do so but we will cheer you up
In our own ways
Don't quit on us when we need you most.

The world is evil but ours is not

We paint our world with different colours
Flowers bloom at every move we make
We hope you will see our small improvement
Like how the flowers bloom
Don't quit on us when we do not reach your expectation.

When things go downhill, do not fret

We're doing fine with just a little hiccup
Rally with us and we'll be okay
Don't quit on us when we take a slide down

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

When the road you're trudging seems all up-hill,
When 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 quit;
Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone 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.
Of ten the goal is nearer than
it seems to a faint and faltering man.
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup.
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.
Success is failure turned inside out,
The silver tint in the clouds of doubt.
And you can never tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit,
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
[2 Timothy 4:7]
