"You are the person that has to decide
Whether youll do it or toss it aside.
You are the one who makes up your mind
Whether youll lead or linger behind
Whether youll try for the goal thats far,
Or be contented to stay where you are.
Take it, or leave it. Heres something to do,
Just think it over. Its all up to you!
What do you wish? To be known as a shirk,
Known as a good person whos willing to work,
Scorned for a loafer or praised by your boss,
Rich or poor, beggar or thief?
Eager or earnest or dull through the day,
Honest or crooked? Its you who must say!
You must decide in the face of the test
Whether youll shirk it or give it your best."
