Leadership

a poem by Avijeet Das

Leadership is not about giving speeches,
or about being popular.
Leadership is not about being loud,
or about having a bigger slice of the pie.
Leadership is not about having more followers,
or about having influential friends.
Leadership is not about dominating the weak.
Leadership is not about being more powerful.

A true leader lifts others up.
A true leader makes others share a vision of hope and achievement.
A true leader stands up for the weak.
A true leader shows the way by their actions.
