WHAT IS A KING

A King

Is a ruler of man

A King

Is admired protector

A King

Is wise in his decisions

A King

Sits on a thrown place there by God

A King

Inspires

A King

Uplifts

 

What is a King?

 

It is not children

Arguing over a legacy

 

It is not greed

A down payment on history

 

It is not a family name

A generation brings it to shame

 

It is not selling tickets

To a path paved by dog bites, water houses or brutal beatings

 

What a King really is

Someone who selflessly inspire peace

This we should never forget.
