IF By Rudyard Kipling (1865 – 1936)




 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 impostors 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 wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
   And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
   And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
   To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
   Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on”;

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!

By Rudyard Kipling (1865 – 1936)

I WILL TRY AGAIN

Failure smile with a stern look Beckons on my deflated ego Whispers the blatant questions What have you learnt? Go, try again
I am not afraid to try again If I didn’t make a move I wouldn’t have If I had stayed same I wouldn’t have If I wasn’t thirsty for a change I wouldn’t have
I will try again Sure I learnt I am not afraid to try again
Not ashamed to try again For in that failure I have learnt not to do it that way again Discovered that failure is a ticket to try again Ticket to do it better Not a ticket to give up
Missing my steps and facing its bruises I have learnt to be careful the next time If I never tried I wouldn’t have known better Failure is not a death sentence to my dreams But a live wire to a better me
I choose to see the bright side of it I choose to count my losses for good I choose to make them a part of my success story I will try again

PEACE OF MIND

Peace of mind When I have done all I know to do All I need to do All I can do All I am meant to do
Peace of mind When I have said the truth Stood by the truth Stood for what is right
Peace of mind When I have played my part Given my best Given my all
Peace of mind When I have worked in love Shared my heart Shared my moments
Peace of Mind When I am at peace with all men Peace with all things Peace with Me
Peace of mind When my heart is right with my Maker I do His will He speaks to me
Peace of mind When I know all things are working together for my good
Peace of mind
