Respect Is Earned Not Just Given

Respect may not
Be given

For it is earned
We have all
Heard that before
And while it may be true
What others may
Have failed to explain to you
Is to earn it
You must first show it
Because in all honesty
If you can't show it
Then you don't
Truly deserve it
So respect
Your enemies
Even if they don't
Respect you
Because it is
Easy to be
And mean back
It takes strength
To remain respectful
And never waiver
Stay strong
