Be The Best That You Can Be

~

If you are a tree,

Be the best tree that you can be.

Let the hands of time mold your body

Endure the seasons ~ be sturdy.

If you’re not a tree

But a shrub only,

Be the best shrub that flourish

Your sight people will cherish.

If you’re not a shrub

But a herb only,

Be the best herb that heals

So people may live.

If you’re not a herb

But a weed only,

Be the best grass that’s green.

To console the people in pain.

And If fate will not make you any,

Then be just the soil maybe.

A fertile soil where seeds

Of herbs and weeds

And shrubs and trees grow.

               Somehow, in them you may live;

               You will bring them life ~

               Becoming the best that you can be.

If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michaelangelo painted or Beethoven composed music or shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here live a great street sweeper who did his job so well. ~ Martin Luther King

~

when I die strew my dust-remains in the earth so trees may grow.
