The Future Edgar Guest "The worst is yet to come:" So wail the doubters glum, But here's the better view; "My best I've yet to do." The worst some always fear; To-morrow holds no cheer, Yet farther on life's lane Are joys you shall attain. Go forward bravely, then, And play your part as men, For this is ever true: "Our best we've yet to do." From the book "Over Here" 1918 Written in Europe during the WWI. This book later reprinted and renamed "Patriotic Poems".
