A Man Should Have Respect - Poem by samuel nze

A man should have respect
His case may not accord him that,
Nor his situation
Yet he must feel self worth.

A man must have respect
He may be poor
And destitute
But he is a child of God.

He is a spark of the Spirit
He is a wonder in himself
He is unique
The greatest of animals.

A man will have respect
Primordiality may refuse him it
But he will strive all he may
To clinch it still.
