Don’t Give Up Poems


1. Never Give Up


Never give up,

Never give in.

Move onward and upward with strength from within.


Always believe,

Always look forward.

Never be the one who is seen as a coward.


Remember the past,

Look for the future.

Always remember it’s often good to be obscure.


You are special,

You are unique.

To go far in life is what you should seek.


You are brilliant,

You prove to be amazing every day,

And there is someone who will love you in every way.



2. Do Not Give Up


If you keep on going

And never stop,

You can keep on going,

You can make it to the top.

Life is full of mountains,

Some are big and some are small,

But if you don’t give up

You can overcome them all.

So keep on going

Try not to stop,

When you keep on going

You can make it to the top.


3. Most people give up

When they are very close

To the dreams and ambitions

That they earlier chose

If only they had tried

A couple of more times again

If only they had pushed harder

And ignored the pain

They would have won

They would have got success

But since they gave up early on

Right now, they are nothing but a mess

The lesson to learn is simple

Never give up the fight

Whatever happens in life

Push forward with all your might


4. Quitting is like a disease

Which spreads very slowly

It eats up all your confidence

And weakens you steadily

If you don’t take stock of it

And control it at an early stage

Giving up will become a hobby

A war in your life it will wage

So if you have been infected

And you want a cure

Never give up in your life

And you will get treated for sure

Dont Give Up Poems 


5. It is perfectly fine if you lose

It is okay if you need a break

But it is totally shameful

If you don’t learn from your mistake

It is perfectly fine if you fail

It is okay if you need to cry

But it is totally shameful

If you give up and never try


6. Don’t give up because you can’t do something

Don’t give up because you can’t achieve anything

Don’t give up because you are able to do nothing

You actually have it in you to do everything

Don’t give up because you can’t reach somewhere

Don’t give up because you can get anywhere

Don’t give up because you are ending up nowhere

You actually have it in you to attain success everywhere


7. Giving up on your favorite things

Is like cutting off a bird’s wings

Without which, a bird cannot fly

Quitting will only make you cry

Instead of chopping off your dreams

And tearing your life apart at the seams

Work hard and keep trying

So like a bird, you can continue flying


8. If you really want to achieve your goals

You will never find an excuse

If you really want to live your dream

Petty reassurances, you will never use

If you really want to reach the finish line

Giving up will never be in your scheme of things

So never give up and keep trying till the end

So that success can give you wings


9. Rising up is a trait of the strong

Giving up is a trait of the weak

Don’t bend down and let go

If success is what you seek

Perseverance is a trait of the strong

Uncertainty is a trait of the weak

If you don’t take fate in your hands

Your future will always be bleak

Never give up


10. Don’t let failure make you give up and cave

To fulfill your dreams, you will have to be brave

Never think of quitting as an option

Instead, think of things that give you motivation

Chasing success and failure is a game

In which the outcome can be lame

If you don’t get up and stand tall

Every time you fail and take a fall

You must push on and continue the fight

Keep trying again and again, with all your might

Never give up, never quit

Give life your everything, to the last bit


11. If you have failed even after being tough

Maybe you haven’t done enough

Even if you have tried again and again

Don’t give up until you go insane

Because the sweetest of fruits are given

To those who are passionate and driven

Don’t give up


12. What will happen in your fate

Will depend on how you think, mate.

So forget about things like defeat

Let positive thoughts make your day complete

Decide that you won’t give up, once and for all

Even in tough times, you will stand tall

Keep pushing even if you are tired

Don’t stop until you get what you desired

Keep trying even if you are out of breath

Don’t let anything scare you, not even death

Dont Give Up Poems


13. If you give up your dreams halfway

With disappointment, you will heavily pay

If you let go of what you believe in

You will commit a dreadful sin

If you fail at achieve your target

You will live the rest of your life with regret

So never give up and keep moving

With confidence in yourself, keep living

Faith and perseverance will be key

In helping you achieve the dreams you see


14. All great mean and women said only one thing

Not to give up and give your dreams the best shot

Read their quotable quotes or biographies

To know that before getting success, they failed a lot

These men and women swear by the fact

That there is no other way to achieve your goal

Than to give everything you have got

And work hard with all your soul

Never give up


15. Did anyone tell you

That life would be easy

Did you hear from someone

That getting success, would be breezy

If you think this way

You are completely wrong

Life is mean, life is tough

It is not a sweet song

For every little goal

For every little dream

You must keep fighting

And never lose steam


16. Work hard, be focused and concentrate

Are the things you must do

But apart from doing all that

You must never give up too

No matter how hard working you are

Or how focused you can be

If you give up after failing

Success is that last thing you will see


17. Many successful people in the world

Have been rejected once or more

But they have never felt defeated

And always had motivation in store

They have tried to beat failures

One way or the other

Finding solutions on their own

Not putting blame on another

From these people

It is important to learn

That for your own success

You have to work hard and earn

And the only way

To accomplish this goal

Is to never give up

Even if life takes its toll


18. Run until you are out of breath

Keep running till you reach your goal

Keep attacking your obstacle

Tell life that you are on a roll

Grab opportunities by the collar

And take life by the lapel

Never give up on the dream you dreamt

And all in life, will be well


19. When you give up on something you really want

You bring upon yourself a curse

When you give up on something you desire by heart

Nothing can ever be worse

When you give up on something you live by

You bring yourself disgrace

So never give up until you reach the end

Because life is one mean and tough race

Dont Give Up Poems


20. Life is a journey with a fork in the road

One way brings grief and the other happiness

The first road goes to failure

And the other one goes to success

The person who chooses the road to failure

Is weak, fragile and helpless

Only the person who is strong and determined

Can chose the road to success

So don’t be weak by giving up

And chase your dreams with all your strength

Have the courage to do what it takes

Achieve your dreams by going to any length

Never give up


21. The motto of never giving up

Doesn’t just apply for lofty dreams

Whether it is an exam or a situation of life and death

Persevering is more difficult than it seams

‘Don’t quit’ should be your daily chant

No matter what you are reaching out for

Otherwise failure will loom large

And of success, you will never be sure


22. Never give up on the person you love

Never give up on your own life

Never give up on your dreams

Don’t quit in times of strife

Never give up on your wishes

Never give on your career

If you had lost faith earlier on

You wouldn’t have even reached here


23. Do you know why you should never give up

Because you can be just an inch away from success

Why give up on something that you are so close to

Why lose out unnecessarily or a dream so priceless

Do you know why you should never give up

Because you can be on the right way

You may need to push just slightly harder

To reach your goal without any delay


24. The only bridge

The only hurdle

The only blockage

The only puddle

Between you

And success

Between you

And progress

Is something

Called perseverance

With which you will succeed

Despite any interference

Dont Give Up Poems 


25. Have you ever seen an ant

That attempts to climb the tree again

Every time it falls on the ground

Until it successfully reaches its den

Consider yourself to be that ant

And visualize your goal in that den somewhere

Keep trying to get every time you fall

Don’t give up until you get there


26. Never, never, never give up

Said the great Winston Churchill

Don’t quit for a single second

Push hard with all your will

This great man also said

If you are going through hell, keep going

If success is what you want in life

Then this is the correct formulae for winning


27. In life, to succeed and to win

First you must fight a battle within

Perseverance is the only thing

That will push you, like a spring

You must keep trying

You must keep pushing

If you want something real bad

Even if you feel tired and sad


28. Don’t Give Up


Just because they give up it doesn’t mean it’s time for you too to give up

Why give up? Why? Why can’t you stand up when there are people out there fighting to live?

Just because things seemed hard doesn’t mean it’s time to give up.

You have to stand up stronger and ask yourself how come there are people who have cancer or poor people and they can get up and fight back. Why can’t you be one of them?


If you fall remember that you still have a chance to get up higher.

Why do you give up when you are very close to making your dreams real?

If you keep trying, keep doing it over, because trying can take you where you have always dreamed to be.


Ignore the pain, Ignore the haters because they hate to see you stand. They are jealous.

Let the haters judge, you just know that they wish they could be like you.

Let the haters hate you because they hate to see you standing up.

Let it be your motivation.


If you ever hear someone talking about you, let them talk about you because they wish they to be like you.

If you know who you are than the is no need for you to believe in their words.

Whatever happened yesterday, leave it behind because those mistakes can never be fixed.


If you don’t want to repeat those mistakes, learn from them. There is always another chance.

Life is not easy, but believe in yourself everything will be alright.

There are going to be hard times, but just know that is a test that God creates to see if you really gonna give up or try.


If you feel fears, pray but don’t let those fears stop you.

Remember we are all equal so don’t you ever feel less because remember there is a god above watching us and loves you.

Everyone has a purpose in this world. You decide what your purpose is.


But remember to keep going, chase your dreams because you never know where those dreams will take you.

Don’t give up because remember there are kids that have cancer or poor people that call still get up and fight.

Love your haters and don’t hate them back, simply feel bad for them.

Love your haters, but don’t judge them back because they show us how to become stronger and become a better human Just remember there is a God that loves us. But don’t ever give up just because the people want it that way.


Always stand and say, I fell this time, but it won’t happen again.

Don’t give up, someone out there knows what you’re capable off.

Smile, and continue.


29. Don’t Give Up

By: Vaibhav Pandey


When nothing is going your way,

and the pessimism holds sway.

Don’t give up.


When your eyes are filled with tears,

sorrowfulness is all which appears,

Don’t give up.


When, in chilly winters, you perspire

With resenting thoughts and constant ire

Don’t give up.


When surrounded by people with a look askance

and nobody is willing to give you a chance

Don’t give up.


Because amidst the darkness of night

comes a new sun that shines so bright

and embracing you with its blessed light.


So don’t,

Don’t give up.

30. Don’T Give Up 

By: Patricia Martin


Life can be a major pain.

If you give up, you won’t gain.

If you’ve had all you could take.

Don’t make a mistake.

And throw your life away don’t give up.

When your life seems to be turned upside down

And you can’t find any friends around,

Don’t give up.

You have a friend in Jesus. He is here.

He’s waiting for you.

With His loving arms opened wide.

Whom you could always confide in.

Just ask Him, pray, don’t give up.

He makes the impossible, possible.

Just trust in our Lord.

There’s nothing else you could afford.

Where the door shut, there’s always a window opened.

When you seem down & blue, and don’t know what to do.

Go to Him in prayer.

The one you could trust.


31. Never Give Up On Yourself 

By: Ray Hansell


My life has been good

That I must admit

But there were times

When I did want to quit


But I always had someone

Telling me don’t give in

Because when you don’t give your all

That is the real sin


If you are blessed with abilities

That others do not posess

Then you must always give all

And strive to do your best


Living life is no secret

It’s as plain to see as the sky

Those who are successful

Are the ones who are willing to try


And when things go wrong

As they sometimes do

That when people watch you close

To see just what you’ll do


And if what they thought

About you is true

A little setback

Will never stop you


So never give up trying

Giving up is a sign of those who fail

And to give up on yourself

Is a sign of self-betrayal


32. Never Give Up

By: Sweta Leena Panda


When life goes rough & tough

Still never ever give up

Stop thinking about what will happen next

Think about the present moment

Live & laugh & say I will never give up

never fear for shadows and out of the darkness

there is no need to run and hide

it’s the actual life

So never give up

you’ll find a shining star without you

Love yourself & see within you

How much positive power you have

You can’t imagine how much blessed you are

So never give up

Life is a battle field

So never give up

Keep fighting till the end

if you will fall along the way

You’ll get up and try again

however never ever accepting the defeat

You are a hero of your life

Never forget

So never give up

It’s your journey

You are well known how to finish it

so set goals in your life

However never let negative thought to hurt your soul

Hold yourself up when you feel down

Be courageous & be free thinker

It’s your life

So you no need to give up

Keep yourself around positive minded people

never dwell on things in the past

Bad times will come & goes

So never give up

be like a tree

Who stands on its own effort?

Its finger dug deep inside the sand

Its branches spread & try to touch the heaven

Its size is big

Still it never ever fear for storm

So never ever give up

Peace is possible

One day war will be ended

I hope it will be possible

So never give up

try your best everyday


33. Don’t You Quit


When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

When the 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 you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,

As every one of us sometimes learns,

And many a fellow 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.

Often the goal is nearer than

It seems to a faint and faltering man,

Often the struggler has given up

Whe he might have captured the victor’s cup,

And he learned too late when the night came 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 never can tell how close you are,

It might be near when it seems afar,

So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit,

It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Don't Give Up Poems

34. Mother Earth


To our dear mother earth,

who gave to all of us birth,

your fever we want to cure.

Will we succeed? Not so sure.

Some of our sisters and brothers

seem not to care for any others.

Apparently blinded by money and wealth,

they seem not worried about your health.

When pushed on the topic of your fever,

they will make any kind of endeavour

to deny it and claim nothing is wrong.

a lack of emotion, their greed much too strong.

I still hope, our dear mother earth,

holding all treasures of incredible worth,

that we will find people in numbers enough

to treat your disease with utmost caring love.

Let us work all together to find a solution,

stop all the waste and unnecessary pollution,

reduce carbon emission, preserve our trees,

keep clean our earth, our oceans and seas.

Now is the time to move and act.

The disease of our mother is a certain fact

No man with a bit of intellect, a bit of a brain

can be allowed to ignore your fever again.


35. Please Believe I Don’t Want To Give Up On Us We Can Make It

By: Kristen Burns-Darling


Don’t give up on us

Before we’ve even begun

Just because you’re afraid

Of things yet to come.

Take hold of my hand

See yourself as I do,


Believe when I say

I’ve enough faith for two.

Don’t trade me for doubt

The doubt is not real,

Besides, it’s no match

For the love that I feel.

There is nothing stronger

Than this bond that we share,

Not those who wish to destroy

Or the crosses we bear.

Can stand up against

The magic of us,

We can slay any dragon

And turn it to dust.

Close your eyes to the darkness,

Close your ears to the lies,

Don’t let go of my heart,

Happiness is the prize.

Don’t give up on us

Because I don’t want to go,

You have my heart,

You’re half of my soul.

If you tried to make me

I wouldn’t be able to leave,

You’re as necessary to me

As the air that I breathe.

So don’t break my heart,

In this, you can trust

I love you forever

Please don’t give up on us.


36. Never Give Up On You

By: Donna Webster


When life gets rough and the road is long

And it seems there is no light

When the dreams you had somehow seem lost

Remember to never give up the fight

When you look in the mirror and see a stranger take a closer look inside

Come out of the shadows and out of the darkness

There is no need to run and hide

Never give up on you

Never forget who you are

Always remember wherever you go

You’ll find that shining star

When you think about the life that you once had

A memory of the way things used to be

Remember that the things that were taken away

Are not the things that will set you free

Remember that you have the power within yourself

And a will that can never be broken

You will survive and grow stronger

This much I know for the angels in Heaven have spoken

Never give up on you

Never forget who you are

Always remember wherever you go

You’ll find that shining star

When you thought the path you chose

Would lead to you to where you want to go

Remember that sometimes the path must be changed

In order for you to grow

When you thought your life had no meaning

Remember that we all have our own special gifts

Look deep inside yourself and sometimes you’ll find

Those things you might have missed

Never give up on you

Never forget who you are

Always remember wherever you go

You’ll find that shining star

We all have the power to change our lives

We’re all born with greatness inside

Don’t let your fears hold you back from dreams

And don’t ever feel you have to hide

Climb that rainbow and reach for the stars

And find your shining light

Remember you’ll survive whatever life brings

And your spirit will shine so bright

Never give up on you

Never forget who you are

Always remember wherever you go

You’ll find that shining star
