A Haiku - Disabilities
Mother dear, I'm here.
I so need your perfect love.
See me through this life.
In dark, and silence,
And halting steps, I'll so grow,
As your love allows.
I, as others, too,
Will reach my potential max,
Though hard the climbing.
It may not be high,
As high as others today.
It will be our high.
Courage, love, and compassion without compare....
As the clocks tick, tick, tick, tick,
the long, self-sacrificing love and
compassion, show a parent's true
courage and dedication to the life
of a child, especially when the child's
needs come with one or more special
The challenges are without respite or
release from the ticking tick, tick as
every day's special, extraordinary,
dedicated love, surpasses them all.

What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.
