Know Your Place

It's important to Know your place in this time and space
Don't look down look up at the obstacles you face
Stand up strong and tall and run a good race
and it doesn't even matter if you don't come in first place

Believe in who you are and know that you are a winner
Like the roadrunner who refuses to be anyone's dinner
Keep on moving and let nothing pull you back
be persistent and stay on the right side of the track

Keep your head up to the sky and let the light embrace you
be confident in what you do and to thine own self be true
It all comes down to what you choose to make of it
So make sure that you know your place and never ever quit.
