Just to continue a bit on yesterday’s theme, ie., the positive messages to today’s  young people. I would offer the following: 

Be a lion,

be a lamb,

be the water,

be the dam,

be a pound,

be a gram.

Be a hammer,

be a nail,

be an oar,

be a sail,

be a rabbit,

be a snail.

Be an adult,

be a child,

be the sharp,

be the mild,

be the tame,

be the wild.

Be the shepherd,

be the ewe,

be the pasture,

be the dew,

be the old,

be the new.

Be a highway,

be a lane,

be the fountain,

be the rain,

be a flower,

be the grain.

Be the guest,

be the host,

be the ocean,

be the coast,

be a pillar,

be a post.

Be a player,

be a fan,

be you woman,

be you man,

be the best,

at, what you can.
