Written for: Poets United Midweek Motif~Respect
In a time when disrespect is rampant, noticing respect is vital. We can still be surprised by the millions of ways people (and nations) show respect for each other. Let’s spread respect today. Let’s show it and praise it and trouble it and mend it.
“In societies where men are truly confident of their own worth,
women are not merely tolerated but valued.”
~Aung San Suu Kyi
R-E-S-P-E-C-T matters to Aretha,
lack of same left Rodney sad.
Don’t you cringe in company
of people who blatantly display
no respect for each other?
Most important, respect
yourself, and depart
from those who choose
not to respect you. Hold
your head up, and “be the
person your dog knows you are.”
Be a star.
