This is a poem about a leader who is guilty, but yet innocent as investigations continue

Am not Innocent, Not yet Guilty

I used to be, an ardent believer in justice
But now I am a victim of dire injustice
Feels like am caught in the middle;
My eyes open and I realize
I am not innocent, not yet guilty
And while an in between
I am not guilty.

There’s no need to judge me
It’s time you learn to be patient
I’ve done so much than I know
So don’t tell me am guilty as charged
I am not innocent, not yet guilty
All you need is facts
Cold hard incriminating evidence
To put me behind the bars;
But if you take ya’ time
To look in my distant past
That’s so real to me than the present
You’ll find in dossiers
This guy is not innocent.

I am not innocent
Don’t be taken in by my upstanding
Not yet guilty
I am just trying to find my innocence
All you need is facts
Cold hard incriminating evidence
And while am in between
I am not guilty.

I am the sun
In the sky above
I cry like a dove
Hide in the alcove
I am Love
The feeling you crave
The first smile
The last mile
The compliment
The Comment
I spoil dates
I make your days
I am a poet!

A well-written poem but one can only wonder which leader you had in mind while writing this poem.

Jerry: Did you mean 'reader'? I agree, a 'well-written poem', but I wonder if I am missing something.
