The Leader

leader

If you can lead by example
And heavy handed goodness
If you can impress us, inspire us
And work to better the human condition
Come lead us to a better tomorrow
If you can see the big picture
Of the human race, of humanity
Of this world, this universe
Of our shared future, our common destiny
Come lead us to a better tomorrow
With ideas, integrity, ideology
For peace, progress, prosperity
And education, welfare, dignity
With lessons learnt from history
Come lead us to a better tomorrow
If you can bring out the best
In your opponents
For a bigger cause
You are my leader
Come lead us to a better tomorrow
If you can fight wars
Of suffering, illiteracy, poverty
And battle tyranny, terror and transgression
With education, enlightenment and opportunity
Come lead us to a better tomorrow
If you are responsible
A reluctant aggressor
Respected by friend and foe alike
And a compassionate visionary
Come lead us to a better tomorrow
A leader of the weak, the sick, the indigent
Calm, courageous, courteous, confident
A leader from the masses, for the masses
Listens before talks, delivers on promises
Come lead us to a better tomorrow
A leader not afraid to apologize
Aware of our imperfection
Builds nation through character
And same set of laws for everyone
Come lead us to a better tomorrow
Are you comfortable
Being kind over bold, just over strong
Can you laugh, can you dream
If you are all this and more
Come lead us to a better tomorrow
I understand, that you are only as good
As I am a citizen
But I expect more from you
Than I am willing to do
So come lead us to a better tomorrow
Will this leader of people
Please step forward
To save us, from ourselves
Before we self combust
And take us to a better tomorrow
