Be The Best Of Whatever You Are

If you can't be a pine on the top of a hill. Be a scrub in the valley,
but be the best little scrub on the side of the hill
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 work, too, And the thing 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.
- Douglas Maloch
