The Power To Be

By Bud Lemire

I shall walk ahead
Not spend my time in bed
Tomorrow will be the sun
Because my time isn't done

I shall dance and sing
I shall fly with a wing
I shall not lay low
I will go with the flow

I shall be nature's best friend
I'll meet each morning until day's end
I shall be kind to each person I meet
I shall stand steady on my feet

With each new day
I shall always find a way
To make every day the best
And do the same for the rest

I won't falter, I won't fail
I will hammer down on each nail
I have the power to be
The very best of me

Author Note:

A poem for those who are struggling with every day.
You have the strength to move ahead and be the best
you can be. Don't look at anyone else and where
they are. This is your journey, and you can go at
any pace you want to. You can be anyone you
want to be. Do it! I have faith in you.
