“The Leader”


Once a shadow,
and now the light.
Looking to an empty sky
and being the only kite.

Before, holding the heat
of the Earth’s might.
Now the ocean
pulls me down, out of spite.

Not one of them
in their circle so tight.
Not one of you
though I was, in hindsight.

Seeming like a lamb,
small and polite.
But truly a lion
with a deathly bite.

I know what’s wrong
and what is right.
But honestly,
I never wanted to fight.

An outside leader
who shines so bright
but her lonely soul
is shrouded in the night.
