IT IS OK MR PRESIDENT

The nights dispel wonders and awe 
The days unfold stupendous enigma
Angels are watching over you
As you battle this valiant crusade
A crusade for equality 
A crusade for stability
Enmesh with peace and honesty.
Angels are watching over you in the
Midst of this gallant fight 
A fight that began several decades before you were born
A fight that spilled the blood of innocent souls  
A fight that wiped out hiprocracy and dimishes the enemy.
I can just imagine how it feels to shoulder these responsibilities
And having the entire world shouting and screaming
Yelling for an end to these atrocities, yet in the midst of it all 
There are several players, and you should not feel bad after all.
I can just imagine how it feels to inherit an impaired house 
And have to  renovate it with strong nuts and bolts, 
Clean running water sturdy roofs and fortified walls.
I can just imagine how it feels to have sleepless nights
daily tug of war, numerous proposals staring at you
advisors who seem to know it all but at the end you
have to give an account for them all.
There is no end to this lingering worriment
only the supreme one can solve them, 
You can give everyone what they want,
But remember that these quandaries existed before your command.
I can just imagine how it feels to have all your excellent
Ideas thrown out the door to endorse something 
to appease the greed of the gluttonous existence.
When the world is talking about you
maintain your cool and do not be fooled.
I can just imagine how it feels to have predicament 
upon predicament mounting upon your desk 
as soon as one is solve you are faced with a gigantic one
You have inherited a legacy of dilemma 
And is now taking the blame for what had previously gone wrong
You hold the entire world in your hand so take courage
And face the obstacles patiently one by one.
Hold true to your ideals, peaceful negotiations can give you a solid deal.
Don’t be too concerned about those who continue to wrangle
Do what you believe is right, strengthen your military and
and welcome the anuran without a fight.
When all is said and done you will win this fiery battle.
You will lose some close friends by the way 
But God will send the perfect one to give you the right advice 
And strengthen you along the way.
Politics is a calculated game, 
but God knows that your intentions are true 
and he will never leave or forsake you.
I can imagine when moments of sighs permeate your space
And days filled with torrid tears
No one to understand, no one seems to care
Everyone is just looking for a slice of the cake
But in the midst of this you have remained a pioneer. 
The people selected you,
But remember that God has appointed you.
You were appointed just in time to avert a worldwide disaster
This is why you are special to the Master.
Anyone who comes against you
will run a thousand miles without a single pair of shoe.
It's ok Mr. President continue to be you

                                        
                                                                                       
                                                                      ©2013 Christine Phillips

    not sure if this is america's president or not, but regardless, each has a hard road ahead of them... for every president before them started paving a path and one (the one is office at the time) is always being blamed for all the faults of the many before him... interesting piece...good points made! good write!

    This is pure truth laid bare of all the office demands of the person at the helm. If people would pray for the man instead of pointing accusitory fingers, maybe things would turn for the better.Blessings Carl

    I am not sure if this is the american president or another but it is certainly patriotic and placing a lot of trust in him. I hope you are right about him. I too think he has good intentions but he has many roadblocks in his way (if this is about Obama) We should pray for him!

    Dedicatd to Obama? A sensational patriotic support of yor president, quite unique n bold eh. The metaphors used in renovation n nuts n bolts ah is impressive.
