African poetry

TO BE A LEADER

You must learn to influence people

 

You must learn to leave no stone unturned

 

You must learn to take decisions for people

 

You must learn to give hope and substance

 

You must learn to let others lean on you

 

You must learn the courage to openly admonish

 

You must learn to maintain courage in the face of difficulties

 

You must learn to find and give direction

 

You must learn to always aspire for greater knowledge

 

You must learn to love and to share

 

You must learn to romance with JESUS

I really can’t trace this line of thought, but all I recall is this: it came straight, pure, and pristine!
