Be the best of whatever you are!

by Douglas Malloch

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 be 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 a 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!
