I've had a Spanish friend tell me of a poem that is claimed to be by Rudyard Kipling. However I was tipped off to it probably not being a Kipling poem by several facts: one, the English translation was on a little visited blog https://sloyu.com/blog/english/2014/02/21/chose-life/ Two, it had an English translation! Lastly, it doesn't sound like Kipling, in theme or meter.
It seems to be a Spanish poem called "elegi" (meaning "I chose"). My question therefore, can anyone definitively say it isn't by Kipling, possibly by identifying the true writer of the poem?
Googling it just gives me a small number of Spanish-language sites attributing the poem (in Spanish) to Kipling, plus some ominous "results removed for data protection warnings" but here is a link to the same blog with the Spanish version.
