Poetry Analysis If by Rudyard Kipling

English 113 9 November 2012 Poetry Analysis by Rudyard Kipling “If” As I analyze this poem, I get a sense of life’s challenges and how someone can overcome those who refuse to take accountability for their own actions.  Considering the poem using point of view, I wonder whether it is being told from the point of view of Rudyard Kipling or not.
