True Leaders Needed - Poem by cheryl davis miller

As a child I heard a great men speak;
of serving others, rather than ourselves.
My young heart was moved with aspirations;
his murder put my dreams upon a shelf.

Another stood tall on the podium,
he taught love and the brotherhood of man.
I longed to go join in the marches, then
they shot the man who wrote from Birmingham.

Another sought to rise up and lead us,
and he shared the ideals of his brother.
From the darkness, a lone sniper shot him.
So most lost hope there would be another.

Look upon the shameless way of many.
Deception seems their only stratagem.
Children seeking leaders, don't find any.
Where are the giants to inspire them?

I weep for the future generations.
Those who search for a reason to believe.
Where's the honored ones to lead this nation?
From this current shameful state bring reprieve.

Listen all who aim to serve in office.
Check hearts as only you and God can do.
America needs those willing to serve her.
The children of the land are watching you.
