Do Your Best - Poem by David Beckham

You can't be perfect
You can't always be the greatest
What commands the most respect
Is your effort to do your best

When the curtain is finally down
And the music has finally stopped
There is nothing more satisfying to self
Than to say, 'I did my best'

It’s healing to say the least
And empowering to hear people say
'All the labor of your hands
Will never be in vain'

In those words you'll find perfection
They mirror all your effort
If ever in need of courage
Pick this poem and read again

You might not be the greatest
Or the best that ever lived
Provided you do your best
You'll be, one of the greatest of all time
