“Be the Best of Whatever You Are”

by Douglas Malloch

If you can’t be a pine o the sop of the hill,
Be a scrub in the valley – but be
The little scrub by 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 leveliest 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 the just be a trail
If you can’t be the sun, be a star
It isn’t by size you win or you fail 
Be the best of whatever you are 

Puisi yang sempat rame.
