If - Poem

If


If you can keep your head when all about you 

 Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; 

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

 But make allowance for their doubting too; 

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

 Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,

Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,

 And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream and not make dreams your master; 

 If you can think and not make thoughts, your aim; 

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

 And treat those two imposters just the same; 

If you can bear to hear the truth, you’ve spoken,

 Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

 And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue, 
Or walk with Kings, nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
 With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run, 
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, 
 And which is more you’ll be a Man, my 
son!

                                  V- Rudyard Kipling
