Respect - Poem by don wilson

RESPECT:
Respect is a lesson that everyone should learn
Respect must be given before an expected return
Respect is something that’s given for free
Respect is about us and never about me
Respect is the basis on which relationships are founded
Respect is the anchor that keeps a person well grounded
Respect builds the character and defines who we are
Respect sets the standard and raises the bar
Respect is magnanimous and helps to fulfil
Respect is the partner that sits with good will
Respect is like honey so sweet it’s perceived
Respect a taste to savour for when it’s received

    I very much enjoyed reading this...wondered if I could use a couple select words in a song I'm setting to 'Twinkle Twinkle' for an assembly I'm heading, all about Character Counts! Thank you! ! :) (Report) Reply
