Walk a Mile in Your Own Shoes

Be an individual
There's strength in who you are
Answer to your higher call
Be your own guiding star.

Find the pathway that you seek
Be the leader of the crowd
Show them that you are unique
Step up tall and stand up proud.

Don't go searching very far
Show the people who you are
Life is there for you to choose
Walk a mile in your own shoes!
Walk a mile in your own shoes!
Walk a mile in your own shoes!

Life can take a thousand turns
A new one every day
Its OK to stop and get
some help along the way

Always do your best and try
To learn from your mistakes
The road through life is made up of
The choices that you make

Be an individual
There's strength in what you do
There is no challenge you can't meet
When one is asked of you
Never stray far from your heart
And have some self respect You'll be
Surprised to find there's more good things in life than you expect
