Given today is World Poetry Day, today’s Leader’s Digest Blog is not surprisingly, a poem.
The following poem, written by a friend and client of mine, is about leadership.
Thank you, Adam, for allowing me to share your gift with others.
The Yearning – by Adam Cooper
The river takes a new bend
And a new horizon unfolds
A long gaze.
A deep breath.
Not for certainty, not for fame
But for something deeper that will sustain.
A yearning for insight – to know the real me
And for grace – to let me be.
A yearning to notice, to reflect with heart
And for courage to act, to play my part.
A yearning for vision – to really see
Not only what is, but what could be.
A yearning to find potential in those I know
And for the wisdom and diligence to help it grow.
