I Lead Faithfully as the Sun

I lead faithfully as the sun,

As it brings forth the day and the night

And does its job until the day is done.

It is the star that is brightest,                         

For the planet, we call home.

The sun is there when we feel alone.


The sun gives more than it takes,

We can count on it

To come through no matter the stakes.             

We rely on the sun to commit

To making this world work as it should.

It gives us life to our childhood.


The sun says “Go play and have fun,"

While it sits in the sky.

If you are looking for hate, you will find none,

For the sun cares for us all until we die.

The sun gives us its all

Until nightfall.


Leaders lead like the sun:

They love and serve,

They give their all until it is done,

They leave no potential in preserve.

To just inspire one,

I lead faithfully as the sun.

I wrote this piece for English class. It shows the characteristics of a leader through the natural element of the sun.
