The Best Of Us
(Inspired by a good boss)
The best of us step forward,
Those prepared to lead,
Those prepared to motivate the others to succeed.
The best of us are thoughtful,
Take time to contemplate,
Take time to hear the rest of us, then deliberate.
The best of us are humble,
Knowing as they do,
That humility's not weakness, just the strength of staying true.
The best of us inspire us,
With their core of inner strength,
We know they'll see the job through irrespective of its length.
The best of us can lead us,
Through any given task,
They know when others have to order, they only have to ask.
