This poem is one of my favourite poems, the reason I like this poem is because it reveals the full picture what should a real man looks like. Many men don't really know what a real man looks like, therefore, many men act like a wussy.
The last sentence in this poem " you'll be a Man, my son!" makes me feel content, it feels like it's my real father talking to me, and yes, I must be a man that my father will be proud of.
If you want to be a real man, if you hope you can be a person that every people can count on you, then read this poem can give you some insights. You can play the video or read the poem below. Embrace. Enjoy.
IF by Rudyard Kipling
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
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
If you can think - and not make thoughts your
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,
