Be the best of what you are!

Hello guys! I just wanna share with you this very lovely poem that I knew in my freshmen years in high school. This reminds me of not quitting, inspires me to get going and doing my best no matter how big or small you are working in. Everyone has its own purpose. Be a star in your own little way! Do your best when others expect you to do less, because the greatest pleasure in life is doing what people think you cannot do. Have a nice day everyone!   

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 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 you 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!
