The LeaderPatient  and steady with  all he must bear, Ready to meet every challenge  with  care, Easy in manner, yet solid as steel,Strong  in his  faith, refreshingly  real, Isn't afraid to propose what is bold, Doesn't  conform to the usual mould,Eyes that have foresight,  for hindsight  won't  do, Never backs down when he sees what is  true, Tells it all straight, and means it all too.Going  forward  and knowing  he's  right, Even  when doubted for why he would  fight, Over and over he makes his case clear Reaching  to  touch the ones who won't  hear. Growing  in  strength, he won't  be unnerved, Ever assuring he'll stand by his word. Wanting the  world  to join his  firm stand, Bracing  for war,  but praying for peace,Using his power so evil will cease : So  much a leader  and worthy  of trust, Here stands a man who will do what he must.
