If. This poem goes around my head so many times a day. Invaluable in raising my boys but also in continuing to raise myself (just exchange man for woman in the final line...) as a human. Invaluable nuggets in every line. • • 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 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 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! • • #if #rudyardkipling #ifyoucankeepyourhead #wednesdaywisdom #instapoetry #thoughtoftheday

Was dying to hold this pen Like we long for light when its dark Oh no one can tell how happy it makes me When the letters on page make me forget the fear I get when I talk No one judges you Its just you and your thoughts Feelings takes the form of whatever you desire Your cries are yours and condolences too I write and I breathe Its like oxygen for me It keeps me away From all the possible heart breaks of an already crooked heart When I tell someone what I feel only to find they don't care at all I kept walking miles while I was unaware But today when I write I quench my thirst You either paint a masterpiece or you burn your canvas You need to play it right with your own mind I have long roads to walk and far stretched goals And I need someone's warmth to make it through the cold But I dont want to loose my self Trying to hold hands of someone Who mistakes my tears for weakness And takes me for granted All these fears comes to an end When I hold this pen and I start to write It somehow solves the puzzles It somehow makes it a little bearable It brings me back my purpose And when I close the book After writing till the ink finishes That's when I feel I'm back to life. #poe#poetry #poem #poet #poe#poetsstagram #wri#wri#wri#writersofinstagram #writing #poetsofig #writer #poetrycommunity #poems #wordporn #writersofig #words #spilledink #instapoet #typewriter #prose #poets #creativewriting #instapoem #writers #write #writerscommunity #instapoetry #writingcommunity #spokenword #poetryisnotdead #igpoets
