If you can...answer...you'll be a Man, my son!
IF you can keep your when all about you
Are losing theirs and it on you,
If you can yourself when all men doubt you,
But make for their doubting too;
If you can and not be tired by waiting,
Or being about, don't deal in lies,
Or being don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too , nor talk too wise:
If you can - and not make dreams your master;
If you can - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with and Disaster
And treat those two just the same;
If you can bear to hear theyou've spoken
Twisted by to make a trap for fools,
Or the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and 'em up with worn-out tools:
If you can...answer...you'll be a Man, my son!
If you can make one of all your winnings
And it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And , and start again at your beginnings
And never a word about your loss;
If you can your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your long after they are gone,
And so on when there is nothing in you
Except the which says to them: 'Hold on!'
If you can talk with and keep your virtue,
' Or walk with- nor lose the common touch
if neithernor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the minute
With sixty seconds' worth of run,
Yours is the and everything that's in it,
And - which is- you'll be a Man, my son!
