On Doing Your Best - Heading .jpg


By Josie Whitehead

On Doing Your Best

We cannot all be winners
     But we all can do our best.
We can’t all be a favourite,
     Or the one most smartly dressed.

We can’t all shine upon a stage
     Or be a superstar,
But we can all do the best we can
     And find out who we are.

Discovering our own true worth 
     Can be a life-time’s quest
And sometimes lead us to the fact
      That we truly ARE the best -

For each and every one of us
      Has a talent of our own
And by developing this special gift
       Our inner lights are shown.

The good friends whom you’ll meet in life
      Won’t put you to the test,
But they’ll appreciate that you are one
      Who’s always done your best.
