Be The Best You Can Be


Be the best you can be,
do the best you can do,
Seuss says there's no one youer than you,
so it's vital to give every bit of that you,
the whole world awaits just what you can do.

Take heart as you go through your day,
be lighter than light as you go on your way,
give your help without asking wherever you may,
offer friendship when needed and offer to stay,
walk in kindness, my friend, and keep yourself free,

and know that I'm trying to be the best me.




In an effort to lighten up and respond to the prompt of Susie over at Imaginary gardens with Real Toads to offer words of encouragement. Is that a great prompt or what?
