Be Outstanding

Inspired by “The roots of true achievement lie in the will to become the best that you can become. “-Harold Taylor


Every beautiful flower is grounded by its roots

It was determined to meet the sunlight

And anxious to spread its petals

Only with itself can it be outstanding


With passion and a will, beauty shoots

The courage to share helps it uncoil

Though among many, it’s unique and bright

Held by its roots, it’s peaceful and settled

Searching within and around for more understanding


Opening itself up, it shares its loots

With buzzing bees and it’s home, the soil

Resting under the moon at night

In all weather, it holds mettle

Standing tall and always withstanding


It meets achievement with its will to fight

Openly sharing it’s beautiful petals

Be the best you can become and be outstanding.
