Quest For President

Quest For President prose poem

Photo by James & Vilija 

O ye of fame, favor and faith, O ye of power and great intent, O ye of power and endless egos
Hear ye what history has spoken, Hear ye well, for we are hoping
Seek not to change our yesterdays, Seek not to sell impossible tomorrows
Sow purity, honesty, wisdom, and truth today
Share with us your very best
Show and tell your visions of success
Speak of life, liberty, and happiness
Stand boldly, strong, and lead us wisely
If you do these things sincerely
You will become more than just a President
And even if your presidential quest should fail
You will have supremely succeeded
