Be The Best of Whatever You Are

If u 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,
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 the 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 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 by the size that you win or fail --
Be the best of whatever you are!

May your every TODAY be better than Yesterday!!
