I came across this poem a few years ago and fell in love with it. It wasn’t until recently when my hubby wanted to give a meaningful gift to his mentor, did I reread it. Since then, I’ve found myself frequently searching for it on the internet just so I can reread it at all hours of the day. There is something so inspiring and yet humbling about the words. I don’t possess very many of the traits Kipling says you should possess, which is why I’m so drawn to it I suppose, but a girl can try.
In order to remind myself of the words, meaning and symbolism of this poem, I decided to make something I can look at all the time.
Hope you enjoy this poem as much as I do!
