Leaders and Rulers

Text by Dartwill Aquila

Leaders lead or guide. Rulers control.

Leaders take us where we want to go.
Rulers force us to enhance their wealth and power.

We are on the way to environmental catastrophe.
Who is leading us to a sustainable existence?

We are on the way to ever greater inequality.
Who is leading us toward justice?

We are on the way to ever more conflicts, wars, death and destruction.
Who is leading us toward peace?

We are on the way to increased division and hate.
Who is leading us toward solidarity and love?

We are on the way to hell and extinction.
Who is leading us to the smiling garden of the future.

When we can’t find any leaders, we must find our way ourselves.
We are sure to meet many leaders along the way.
We may even find many people behind us,
being lead.
