If you can meet with Triumph



“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;”

― Rudyard Kipling


There are moments in life

when we come face to face

with an option

between two paths

one is more familiar than the other

it is a continuation of our old habits

within the confines of our comfort zone

if we take a stroll along that route

chances are we’ll get more of the same

but what about the other way

where does that lead

to triumph or disaster

will we dare to tread the unknown

unsure of the earth beneath our feet

to run the risk of getting lost

or to find the treasures that we passionately seek


“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!”
― Rudyard Kipling
