Visionaries

Visionaries and Integrators - Part 1: Why Both Are Essential

There were the days of the visionaries,

People who made collectives come true,

People who strived to uphold integrity, the oath declared, a sacred one,

true to their promise they stand, united, never wavering in their willful journey

to make the world so much better than before.

.

They were recognized as stewards of their countries, irrespective of race,

of religion, of creed.

.

These visionaries charted a path to proclaim victory,

Mostly arduous routes to bear, they rise above their challenges,

Often cited with example, Often studied in historical context,

Often a reminder to the next world.

.

With a mark of respect, we hail visionaries, bold enough to fight

against a divided world in order achieve good.

It is only the good and not diabolical who become visionaries,

as lives depend on their ruling, their actions, and their intentions.

.

I always wondered about visionaries, how they inspired the world,

with their presence. Most of them, not only create history, they also show that before they had a dream, they possessed ambitions, and it was mostly for the benefit of mankind.

Let’s salute visionaries, past, present and future.

Did you watch the inauguration of President Joe Biden, and Vice-President Kamala Harris? A lovely ceremony.

I loved the poem by Amanda Gorman.

I watched the first family, and the newscaster said that they were a very close knit family.

A few years ago, Mr. Hunter Biden followed me on Twitter:) That was during Mr. Obama’s presidency. I used to send some of my poems to Mr. Obama and Michelle on their official websites. Michelle Obama, I know loves poetry, in fact, both of them do.

When Mr. Obama’s reign ended, I received a “Thank you,” mail from the White House.

How neat is that? I sometimes tag Mr. Hunter Biden to the poems I write on my blogs since he reads them.

President Joe Biden’s speech was really heartfelt, genuine.

Here’s wishing the best to the people of America and their American dream – shobana

  1. You have a way of letting us see above the event in a space that we can understand from a third dimension.
