780. If I am to lead

If I am to lead,
I must touch others’ feet first.

If I am to guide,
I must wash others’ feet first.

If I am to lead,
I must kiss others’ feet first.

If I am to guide,
I must become others’ feet first.
And then alone
Can I be the Leader
And Guide of Divinity’s Smile
And Humanity’s pride.
