BE the best of whatever you are

If you can’t be a pine on the top of the hill

Be a scrub in the valley- but be

The best little scrub by the side of the hill;

Be a bush if you can’t  be a tree.

We can’t all be captains, we’ve got to be crew;

There’s something for all of us here.

There’s a big work to do and there’s lesser to do,

And the task we must do is near.

If you can’t be a highway, then just be a trail

If you can’t be the sun, be a star.

It isn’t in size that you win or you fail,

Be the best of whatever you are.

(Douglas Malloch)
