Be The Best Of Whatever You Are


Posted on 7th Aug 2020 03:02 pm by rohit kumar

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 rill;

 Be a bush if you can't be a tree.

 

If you can't be a bush be a bit of the grass,

 And some highway happier make;

If you can't be a muskie then just be a bass —

 But the liveliest bass in the lake!

 

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

 There's something for all of us here,

There's big work to do, and there's lesser to do,

 And the task you 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 by size that you win or you fail —

 Be the best of whatever you are!
