Don’t Quit

1 10 2010

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
Ketika segalanya tidak berjalan dengan baik, seperti yang kadangkala terjadi

When the road we’re trudging seems all uphill,

Ketika jalan yang kita lalui dengan susah payah tampak begitu berat

When the funds are low and the debts are high,
Ketika penghasilan begitu sedikit dan utang menumpuk

And we want to smile, but you have to sigh,
Dan kita ingin tersenyum, tetapi harus berkeluh kesah

When care is pressing us down a bit
Ketika kesulitan mengecewakan kita

Rest if we must, but don’t we quit
Beristirahatlan bila perlu, tetapi jangan menyerah

Life is queer with its twists and its turns,
Hidup dan segala seluk beluknya kadang tampak aneh

As everyone of us sometimes learns,
Seperti yang kadangkala kita alami

And many a failure turns about
Dan sering kali seseorang berbalik arah

When they might have won, had they stuck it out.
Ketika mereka mungkin dapat menang,  andai saja mereka bertahan

Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
Jangan menyerah, meski jalannya lambat

We may succeed with another blow.
Kita dapat berhasil dengan mencobanya lagi

Often the goal is nearer,
Terkadang sasaran tampak lebih dekat dari yang kelihatan

than it seems to a faint and faltering man,
Bagi seorang yang bimbang dan lesu

Often the struggler has given up
Sering kali seorang terlanjur menyerah

When he might have captured the victor’s cup;
Ketika ia mungkin dapat merebut piala kemenangan

And he learned too late when the night came down,

Dan ia terlambat untuk menyadari ketika malam telah tiba

How close he was to the golden crown.
Bahwa sebenarnya ia berada begitu dekat dengan mahkota emas

Success is failure turned inside out
Keberhasilan ada di balik kegagalan

The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
Warna perak dari awan keraguan

And we never can tell how close we are,

Dan kita tidak akan pernah tahu  seberapa dekat sebenarnya

It may be near when it seems so far;
Ketika tampak jauh, sebenarnya sudah dekat

So stick to the fight when we’re hardest hit,
Jadi bertahanlah saat kita menghadapi kesulitan yang tersulit

It’s when things seem worst that we must not quit!
Ketika segalanya tampak begitu buruk, jangan menyerah
