If you cannot be a pine tree on top of a hill
Be a bush in a valley, but be
The best bush on the edge of the stream.
Be a branch if you cannot be a tree.
If you cannot be a branch, be a bit of grass
And give joy to a path.
If you cannot be a road,
Be just a way,
If you cannot be the Sun, be a star.
It’s not the size that makes success or failure…
But be the best in whatever you are.
