You don’t flinch at challenges, and you don’t wince at pain;
you don’t wail when you suffer, don’t show it all in your face;
you finish what you started, and start again should you fail;
you don’t cry in front of others, and you don’t incubate self-hate;
mind your own business, no excuses nor blackmails;
don’t let ups raise you too high, don’t let downs carry you away.
