Their Game

I thought I could avoid it.
It was their game, not mine.
I didn't think I'd have to
Play by their rules and do
Things in their time to be
Noticed. I was wrong. I'll
Play their game. I'll take
Their rules and bend them
And in time break them.
They'll look up one day and
See their game has become
My game. That their masses
Are divided, that the tides are
Turning, that their people are
My people. That they stand
For the betterment of the
People. To fight and die
For what they believe
To be right and just.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Something stirs in me. For the first time in my life I feel like I could be a leader. That I could leave this world better than I found it.

Good write Mr Diamond.Dream think act and set an example.Maybe these are the traits of a leader.A leader must never abandon his dreams however impossible or impractical they may seem in reality.
