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,
And some highway some 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 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 you fail-
Be the best of whatever you are!



 This poem is light-hearted,but it does contain a  profound message.Not everyone will be a government leader , a CEO or number one in his class.
The important
