U don't have to be the best to be the best

The best aren't always the best
JayZ isn't the best rapper
Yet he's the king of rap
Fela Durotoye isn't the best speaker
Yet he's king in the league of speakers
Enyeama isn't the best Nigerian goalkeeper
Yet he's the best in the national team

U don't have to be the best to be the best

Where are the 'best's?
Who are the 'best's

There are many heroes
Whose praise will be left unsung
There are tons of bestsellers
Who will never make it to the publisher's
Many champions
Who will never be found in battles

There are many stars
Who will never shine

It is not in being the best
It is not in doing ur best
It is in understanding the times and seasons

"I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race [is] not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all."
---Ecc 9:11 [KJV]
