The Best Of You - Poem by Amelia Evelyn White

Everything that you do
Is a reflection of you,
So do the best that you can do.

Doing just enough to get by
Is not enough for me.
For in the long run
It's just not enough, you see.

Everything that you do
Is a reflection of who you are.
So do your very best
And in life you'll go far.

You never know what
May come your way.
So please do your best
Day by day.

Do a thing and do it well
The end result will surely tell
That doing anything less
Than your very best
Is just a waste of time
Dear grandson of mine.

Do your very best and
God will do the rest.
