    "Equipment"

    George Washington Carver's Favorite Peom

    GW

    Figure it out for yourself, my lad

    You’ve all that the greatest of men have had

    Two arms, two hands, two legs, two eyes

    And a brain to use if you would be wise

    With this equipment they all began

    So start for the top and say, “I can.”

    Look them over, the wise and great

    They take their food from a common plate

    And similar knives and forks they use

    With similar laces they tie their shoes

    The world considers them brave and smart

    But you’ve all they had when they made their start.

    You can triumph and come to skill

    You can be great if you only will

    You’re well equipped for what fight you choose

    You have legs and arms and a brain to use

    And the man who has risen great deeds to do

    Began his life with no more than you.

    You are the handicap you must face

    You are the one who must choose your place

    You must say where you want to go

    How much you will study the truth to know

    God has equipped you for life, but He

    Lets you decide what you want to be.

    Courage must come from the soul within

    The man must furnish the will to win

    So figure it out for yourself, my lad

    You were born with all that the great have had

    With your equipment they all began

    Get hold of yourself and say: “I can.”
