A Leader

A leader lives a  life of purpose
Working from dawn to dusk
Serving the community
Living steadfast to ideals

Empowering the populace
Bringing education to them
A leader awakens the masses to
Truth,  courage and love

A leader  serves the needy
Cares for  the orphan
Feeds the hungry and
Clothes the destitute

Breaking  bonds of slavery
Ending years of servitude,
A leader frees society from
Fear,poverty and illusion

A leader leaves a legacy
By bringing lasting change
Knowledge breaks caged walls
A nation wakes up to freedom
