Growing big does not mean
Standing higher than others in status, in position
It is scaling heights in the goodness of soul
It is giving respect to grass and the tree alike
It is in understanding that everyone does their best
To the best of their capabilities
It is in accepting and not judging others
For their failures and success alike.
It is also in accepting self with the limitations
It is acknowledging the kindness in others
It is respecting those who come to seek
In word or in deed.
It is in being honest with oneself
It is in being happy with oneself
It is then that we stand tall.
