What I Want to Do:


 
My Page Billboard

Lead

 

Thin line formed by those who know,

attracting those who know,

giving of their very core

to help the mass that doesn’t know…

 

Deep within the core of we,

a fabric bathed in soul,

that looks toward horizon,

that stands to lead where few will go.

 

Heavy burden carried quiet,

not a thought of “why” it’s done,

yet granted love in living’s moment

to lift and calm the worried sum.

 

At core, in every fiber,

we know it in our hearts,

this calling so belongs to us,

to lead and gather up the parts

of that which falls around us,

be it soul or act or wind,

that so upon this living field

we guide the hearts of men.

 

In twos we find each other,

in pairs we balance what we know

of what we’ve learned in life as one,

and what alone as two we show.

 

Balance, counter-balance,

by twos we change the world,

strength to ebb and recover strength,

in twos can such a power unfurl.

 

Saving lives through action,

mending lives through words,

calming spirits through simple glances,

till every ache and ailment cured.

 

As two who know the calling,

bathed in soulful fabric, shared –

the strength of both may burden one

when one is without its living pair.

Yet strong the stitch and weave endures

and pulls to balance, centered again,

that strength of two will right itself,

their fabric such, will always mend…

that not Newton’s motion or outside force

so worked upon in any sense

can undo the core of one or two,

but Newton, such to two will bend…

 

It’s in you and you know it.

You feel your strength in every day.

You feel the universe unfold and roll

at your feet as if to say,

“I’m here for you and all you are

and all you hope to be,

is mine to give at your request

for the core of you is me.

You lead for you’re beloved,

and love’s your strongest gift,

that when you’re two with soul as one,

no grief or burden can’t you lift.”

 

Believe the simple truth you know,

you’ve always known its strength.

Lead by what is best in you

till that’s all that’s left, at length.
