Things Work Out == Edgar A. Guest

Because it rains when we wish it wouldn't,
Because men do what they often shouldn't,
Because crops fail, and plans go wrong-
Some of us grumble all day long.
But somehow, in spite of the care and doubt,
It seems at last that things work out.

Because we lose where we hoped to gain,
Because we suffer a little pain,
Because we must work when we'd like to play-
Some of us whimper along life's way.
But somehow, as day always follows the night,
Most of our troubles work out all right.

Because we cannot forever smile,
Because we must trudge in the dust awhile,
Because we think that the way is long-
Some of us whimper that life's all wrong.
But somehow we live and our sky grows bright,
And everything seems to work out all right.

So bend to your trouble and meet your care,
For the clouds must break, and the sky grow fair.
Let the rain come down, as it must and will,
But keep on working and hoping still.
For in spite of the grumblers who stand about,
Somehow, it seems, all things work out.


  1. Respected Sir,


    We are blessed to read this wonderful poem!

    Thank you very much, and always thanking you for sharing valuable writings!

    Sorry for not typing in Tamil, as I am typing from a different computer which is not having Tamil font.




  2. There is a famous sentence that goes this way "A sentence cannot start with 'because' because, 'because' is a conjunction"
    I am thrilled to see an entire poem with so much posi+ive energy with almost each line startign with because.How is it possible?
    Because he is a genius :-)

    I beg to differ.

    We cannot END a sentence with because because because is a conjunction.

    We can very well start a sentence with because.
