Salman Javid

Thee Respect Within

The world a strange place,
And power its strangest act,
The act of making
A mundane divine
The act enabling to
Think like thy Lord and feel elated

But many a hapless souls now
Were great and powerful once
Before the lure of a sycophant
So, what’s important is
Not weighing the words
But the intentions behind
Thy call
Thee Respect Within!
