GIVEN POWER

Power given is to be shared
Power given is to be faired
Power given is to be wired and lighted to act electricity for all
Power given is not like power taken
Power given is to be organized
Assume super hero wings
…and you’ll crash
A reality parcelled in facts

II
Leading needs patience
…with loving arms
…consultations and delegations
…needing a many to hold hands
…into a one queue
Charting paths to honour the whole

III
There can only be disagreers
…not enemies
There can only be challengers
…not destroyers
There can only be different perspectives
…not ruiners
All it takes is a channel of conversation
…that tunnels to all minds on board
…with an end shine

IV
Leading as an eagle
…and branding all chickens
…even for a good cause
Is no victory
For an us in doing adds satisfaction
…and a reputation gargantuan
Talk of a unifier
Talk of a revered
Talk of a heart many will kill to heart on!
Leading is no soldiering on a battlefield

V
So share the power given
…like a boss
Toss out odd thoughts
…leaving a legacy better than the previous
We emulate to refine
…not to confine
A hay torch-bearer plays with no water
…in a leading dark

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
