A Haiku - Zealousness
Is there still zeal enough?
Cheers leading a cause....
They practice early.
Victorious cheers ready.
Zeal needed to win.
It is summer, but already the school's young cheerleaders are practicing. Even before the football players are practicing for the games of Fall, the cheerleaders are drilling, practicing, tumbling, filled with anticipatory enthusiasm. Can they know any victory is certain or pending? But, cheer they will, hoping their zeal will be contagious, the zeal needed for others to win when the competitions begin.
The mother and dad are smiling, supportive, encouraging first footsteps, first words, first struggles along the way. Can they know any victory is certain or pending? But, cheer they will, hoping their zeal will be contagious, the zeal needed for others to win in the competitions of life.

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.
It just disappears when you seriously don't want it any more. When that happens, it goes the way of all life, it just leaves early, leaving you with a healthy Body Mass Index....BMI and better life.
