Election - Poem by Pratheek Praveen Kumar in Calm Reflections

A time where people assert their importance,
Where they must show their sense,
And reflect the work of their government,
And the new or old leaders to power send.

A time of importance for a country,
Which, is strong and free,
A symbol of the importance of people,
From the richest to a cripple.

Something that every free country does,
Without which it is under a curse,
The leaders beg for votes,
And commit actions that may land them in courts.

It is a time for actions for all,
They should answer their country's call,
And vote for the leader who they feel is the best,
And try to bring down the rest.

Illegal activities happen often,
They are ever-present as the Sun,
However the spirit is what is important,
As freedom is something God-sent.

The much awaited people's grand selection,
What else can it possibly be but election?
The people who ruled uncertainly do sigh,
And not to lose election, their best they try.

In election truly in charge are people,
Their choice does many elevate or cripple,
The people chosen are the lucky few,
Their years ahead will be exciting and new.

Rulers are changed or again elected,
Those who serve all and really good,
Always come up and march ahead,
Rise in rank and stand in good stead.

Who for people are truly bad and uncaring,
Lose all claims for a lawmaker's bearing.
