I shall ever try to keep all command and control out of my thoughts,
knowing that thou art that servant leadership
which has kindled the light of reason in my heart
I shall ever try to drive all projects with passion,
knowing that thou every project hast thy seat in the collage of my heart
And it shall be my endeavor to reveal thou spirit to every member of the team
I ask for a moment’s indulgence to sit by my team.
The tasks that I have in hand I will finish afterwards
Pluck this little project in thy garland of life, though it’s goal be not grand and it’s low on rank
Use this project in thy service and pluck it while there is time
O fool project manager, try to carry thyself upon thy own shoulders!
Leave all the burdens in thou hands who can bear all
This path that my journey takes is long
and the way of it very long
The project has competed and everyone has taken leave,
what lessons learned thou know now that thou never knew.
