From Chicken Soup for the Kid's Soul


Don’t be a coward, fearful and weak
Be the last one to quit, and the first one to
Don’t hide your face from the light of day
Be courageous in life and stay that way
No need to run from your trials, troubles
  and problems
Have confidence in your step as you reflect
  how to solve them
Yet, if you happen to fall, don’t lie there and die
Get up without a thought, and hold your
  head up high
Be wise, courageous, bold and brave
And life will be worth living, from your
  birth to your grave.
