Loving Our Leaders

©2009 by Alice Walker
For Beverly

I find I am loving
Our leaders
Unconditionally
As I know
I am
Loved
Myself.

I love him
I love her
I love the girls
The grandmother
The friends
& deceased
Grandparents
& ancestors:
I especially
Love
The
Dog. And would hope
For him
Soon
A cat.

They
Are us
You know,
Our leaders;

Finally
Leading
Ourselves
As us:

Who we really
Are:

More perfect
For
Our imperfections:

Unconditionally
& forever
Loved

Human beings.
