Don’t be good, don’t get better. Be the best they’ve ever known.
You need no ladder to reach the sky
And now is the day to do or die,
Well, they’ll laugh and you might cry
But it’s your life, so don’t take standby.
Strive harder under the moon and sun
Do all you can, call it outdone,
Don’t dream to become like someone
Dream and practice and work to be the one.
Work as hard as you can today
For hard work pays off anyway.
Do something that takes your breath away
Make it last at the end of the day.
Try try and only try
They can’t stop birds that fly high,
When in crisis, close your eye
And dream again to fly high.
For one day they’ll scream your name
Higher above their voice and fame.
For you’ll be that overcame
The noise of fear and shame.
