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 masters,

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

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

  And treat those two imposers jus the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken

  Twisted by knaves to make traps 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 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 your 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 !

 
worn-out   no longer usable
     
pitch and toss   a coin game
