I’m a sophomore management student at the Ateneo de Manila University. I’m an ordinary citizen of the Philippines and I wish to share a first hand reflection or shall I say reminder to the people in the system governing ordinary citizens — like me.
In this time of national crisis, leadership is a very crucial aspect of society. In view of this, I wish to contribute an original poem entitled, “Leader’s Oath.” May this serve as a simple reminder to the leaders already in the system and to the individuals aspiring to be leaders of the system.
Just in case my poem is not worthy of publication, please do return it to me immediately. I have enclosed a self stamped, self-addressed envelope. Thank You and More Power!
