[POEM] Who Do You Think You Are? - Be The Best Version Of Yourself

Sometimes we try to be someone else. We try to compare ourselves with others. We tend not to take whatever we do or have, as serious as we should. We tend to live someone else's life, forgetting ours.
We all wished to be the boss. No one wants to be following, we all wants to lead. But, if you are not a good follower, how can you be a good leader? 
Whether you are into carpentry, medical doctor, nurses, security etc BE THE BEST VERSION of yourself.
This poem, by Douglas Malloch, will help you push on and be yourself.

If you can't be a pine on the top of the hill,
Be 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 there's lesser to do
And the task we must do is near.

If you can't be a highway, then 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!
-Douglas Malloch
