    David, wonderful poem of course, I agree, respect has to be earned not demanded. You are absolutely correct, we must respect another in order to gain respect from that individual. My kind of poem indeed, Thankyou David-Melvina- (Report) Reply

    Wise words, David. You get what you put out - always. Respect is necessary and deserved by every human being, no matter what the situation. And....don't forget - as the song goes.........'respect yourself'!

    We give what we get and get what we give. It can be a vicious cycle unless ascending. Solid thought though David. (Report) Reply
