step down

you have the power
of position over me
step down
and be my friend.

you have the wisdom
of years i lack
step down
and be my friend.

you have the grace
of heartache healed
step down
and be my friend.

you have the earned significance
rightly due your name
step down
and be my friend.

i do not want to belittle anyone. to make them less than they are. but there are times when we can only relate to one another on level ground. not looking up or looking down, but looking eye to eye. walking side by side. this is all i ask, this is all i pray. step down and be my friend.
