“You can be better than you are
You could be swingin’ on a star”
Swingin’ On a Stay by Jimmy Van Heusen and Johnny Burke
You could chase greatness. You could become more than you are. Or you can take the easy route, and be a beast of burden like a mule and not use your brain but the strength of your limbs. Yes, you could do well for a while but you will broken over time by the load you carry and never be more than a pack animal.
Or you could be a fish, stay with the school and be caught in the net with all the others.
Maybe be a monkey, chattering and sitting in a circle picking at each other. Maybe hearing, seeing, and speaking no evil.
Or you can carry moonbeams in a jar and illuminate others.
Swing on the star and light the world!
