Test Of A Man

Author Unknown

The Test of a man is the fight that he makes.
The Grit that he daily shows.
The way he stands upon his feet.
And takes life’s numerous bumps and blows.

A coward can smile
When there’s not to fear.
A noting his progress bars.
But it takes a man to stand and cheer.
While the other fellow stars.

It isn’t the victory after all.
But the fight that a brother makes.
A man, when driven against the wall,
Still takes the blows of fate.

With his head held high.
Bleeding, bruised, and pale,
Is the man who will win fate defied.
For he isn’t afraid to fail!
