If I can work through loosing my head when I am honestly stuck.
If I can learn to regain my trust when I have lost it.
If I can wait, slow down and become calm to regain my patience,
Or when I lie, stop lying,
Or when I hate stop hating,
And not act too good or proud,
If I can stop making dreams my master,
If I can stop making thoughts my aim,
If I can treat success and failure the same.
If I bear to refrain from twisting the truth,
Or watch the work I have done wasted but reach out and retask it for further use.
If I can make one heap of all my wealth and risk it on my belief for a worthy cause.
If I can use the last drop of my life strength when I only have my self-will to hold and use.
If I can talk with people and remain myself,
If I can walk with authority and remain calm,
and not loose my common sense,
If I do no harm to others,
If people count with me but not too much.
If I can stop when I start to hurry and worry.
I will earn the treasure in life worth having and be a true adventurous human being.
