R.E.S.P.E.C.T. - Poem by Karen Montegrande
It’s hard to tell them when whta’s true, ‘cause deep inside you know they’ll judge you, Put you down and even condemn you, They perfectly don’t know what you feel, But still they don’t want to understand what’s real, ‘Cause for them your just the dirt in their hands, They won’t open their hearts and accept you, But they’ll slam the door and push you away, tell you you’re nothing and stab you with the hurtful word they say,
No one is perfect as many people would say, But in their eyes they feel perfect and they won’t listen to a word you say, Respect is a broad word to understand not by mind but by our hearts and soul, It’s confusing to know what respect really means, ‘Cause respect couldn’t be seen, People are people and yes we make mistakes, We try to be perfect but still there are rules that we break, The test of time will measure who we really are with every brave soul that sticks to the word respect and practice it, Is a ghost of reality that haunts everyone to change what they are today, Change the things that are wrong and learn to give way,
Good people often get hit by intrigues all the time, But it doesn’t mean revenge should come on the line, ‘Cause if only people would learn to give respect to live and if we learn to give respect we’ll all be happy, Aned we’ll never see someone crying or planning revenge to somebody,
Let’s RESPECT everybody, treat them as a family.
