Prime Mover


Prime Mover


You’re the pedal that rotates and moves the bike,

a helping hand boosting others’ climb to the top of the vine.


You make sure ventures never blink,

but instead clear a line of sight to courteous consideration.


You, a humane intellectual. Not afraid to tackle the question,

how can problems between and among us be resolved?

Your heart tells other hearts the lasting solution.


You, aiding others to stand on level ground,

and hold the line of dignity steady:

None to fall back,

None to fall down.


You, the prime mover of kindness.

Your greatest power is in your smile
