"To Be A Man"

"Help me in all life’s games to play

So those with whom I’m matched might say,

'There’s a Man who to the core

Is clean and fair, and furthermore

It makes no difference win or lose

He’s the kind of a friend that one would choose.'

Let me victory to attain

If by my strength and skill I can

I’ll heed the rules and play my best

And whether I fail or pass the test

Let me not myself disgrace

I’ll be a Man in either case.

I do not want to steal the show,

But rather that the team would know

That I am with them every minute

In the game to help them win it.

I want to do just all I can

To help myself – to be a Man.

I want opponents at their peak

If full benefits I would seek.

For I know that satisfaction

Is in proportion to the action,

That it takes from mind and muscle

In a tense and even tussle.

Should I win I will not boast

But to them all I’d give a toast

'Here’s to my teammates and opponents

Who helped me in these passing moments

To make my life a greater pleasure

By closer to a Man to measure.'

If I should lose I’ll not complain

I’ll do the thing I know is sane,

Congratulate the team which won

And then as soon as that is done

I’ll vow next time to do e’en more

To be a Man and help my score."
