Be The Best You Can Be


Don't listen to those who say you can't
You can be what you want to be
Don't listen to the voices of discontent
I won't let that happen to me

Step out of the shadows and be yourself
Aspire to all that your heart desires
Raise your sights to the sky above your head
Go after all that your dream inspires

Life is for living...keep true to yourself
Never lose track of all that you treasure
Step forward with courage and strength of will
You'll be blessed with good things beyond measure

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
