Make Your Move

As you're reading this, your life's getting shorter.
It's ticking away.
I'm not saying this to frighten you.
Or even scare you.
Though it may.

I'm saying this to awaken you.
To inspire you.
To rise you out of your deep slumber.
To really know you won't live forever.
To share your unique gifts.

To ignite your great inner fire.
To ignite your great inner strength.
To ignite your great inner light.
To shine.
Brightly shine.
To awaken your great inner beauty.

To motivate.
Yourself and others.
To love.
Yourself and others.

To paint.
To write.
To teach.
To innovate.
To sing.
To dance.
To care.
To feel.
To listen.
To learn.
To laugh.

The clock's ticking.
The world needs you.
Make your move.

If you can't be a pine on the top of the hill, Be a scrub in the woodly - But be the best little scrub by the side of the rill, Be a bush if you can't be a tree. If you can't be a bush be a bit of the grass, And some highway happier make; If you can't be a muskie then just be a bass- But be the liveliest bass in the lake! We can't all be captains, we've got to be crew, There's something for all of us here, There's big work to do, and lesser to do, And the task you must do is the near. If you can't be a highway then just be a trail, If you can't be the sun, be a star; It isn't by size that you win or you fail - Be the best of whatever you are!
