Respect


Respect each peer
Respect each foe more
Attributes stand next to your conscience’s core

Respect each night
Respect each day
Actions reveal your character in every way

Respect each creature
Respect each beast
Trust unveils truth hidden behind nature’s mist

Respect each cloud
Respect each grain of sand
Mercy will offer you her helping hand

Respect each color
Respect each race
Equality speaks only of mercy and grace

Respect each river
Respect each pond
Mother Nature conveys her great wonders and beyond

Walk into each day,
With your heart soaked in hope and joy
As day fades and night endures
Respect will never destroy

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
