THE PERSON I’M LOOKING FOR

If you do not get lowered in your own eyes

While you raise yourself in those of others

If you do not give in to gossips and lies

Rather heed them not, saying ‘Who bothers’.

You may be the person I am looking for.

If you crave not for praise when you win

And look not for sympathy while you lose

If cheers let not your head toss or spin

And after a set-back you offer no excuse.

You may be the person I am looking for.

If you accept counsel without getting sore

And re-assess yourself in the light thereof

If you pledge not to be obstinate any more

And meet others without any frown or scoff.

You may be the person I am looking for.

If you have the will to live and courage to die

You are a beacon-light for people far and wide

If you ignore the jeers and, thus, expose the lie

‘That virtue and success do not go side by side’.

You are the person I am looking for.
