To Be Given


Respect is something is taught to us everyday
But we need to need to listen as follows as our elders say
The things that we are taught we tend to forget,
But as we older we tend to regret.
Remember the days that we put people down,
Today is the day we listen and help those people get around.
We need to listen and think from our good heart,
By doing this it will build us a friendship that will not tear us apart.
We need to listen and take heeds, and help anyone in the time of need.
So as we stand up and help the people that are weak,
We will have shown ours elders that we listened and followed of what they would speak.
As we will show the elders the respect that To be given and what is deserved.
They will be happy because they have taught us to give respect and to proudly serve.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Today was a day of pure fun. I have fun felt this much fun in the past few years except with my sons. They are my life and that will never change in anyway. I have turned to realize that respect is something has to be given before it can be gained in life.

I also have to say that there is someone that I rarely speak to the last year. This person over the years has tried to talk to me and I was too hard headed to listen to you. I want you to know if you ever read this passage in which I am about to write that is dedicated to you is something that someone has been tiring to tell me over the last two months.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
