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.
