Be The Best of Whatever You Are

Poet: Douglas Malloch

If you can't be a pine on top of the hill
Be a scrub in the valley - but be
The best little scrub at 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 grass
Some highway to 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 have crew,
There's something for all of us here.
There's big work to do and there's lesser work too
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 size that you win or you fail.
Be the best of whatever you are.

A Poem of Encouragement About Being Your Best

Imagination and Enthusiasm
Poet: W. C. Thurston

Take imagination and enthusiasm,
And hitch the two together,
Then fix your gaze on the farthest star
And forget about the weather.

Take a pound of pluck and energy a
And mix with an ounce of thrift,
Then forward-march to the heights ahead,
And don’t be begging a lift.

Pick out the hill you want to climb
And fix your gaze on the peak,
Then blaze your way to the very top,
The bottom is reserved for the weak.

Imagination and enthusiasm;
Mark you! this matchless team,
Is yours to harness and drive to the goal,
Of all your heart has dreamed.

Imagination and enthusiasm;
Oh man! if you are wise,
You’ll give ’em the rein,
Then fix your gaze
On the brightest star in the skies
