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 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 captains, we’ve got to be a 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 the 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 fail

Be the best of whatever you are!

<<<Douglas Malloch>
