Earn Respect


Respect is build upon
Hard work and struggles
To prove oneself worthy
To be treated with honor
And most of all it’s earned
Through your character
Not through force or fear
Or by use of power to crush
Others for that is not respect
That people have for you in
Their silenced voices and
Tied hands but avoidance of
Pain and humiliation you throw
In their way to make them
Fall so as to feel better about
The person who you are but
Don’t forget today may not
Be their day but the people
Will rise and karma will do
The due you carry around so
Be weary and learn to treat
All equally with compassion
Life has a way of balancing
The wrong deeds you do
So learn before you falter
