Where Is The Respect - Poem by Ronell Warren Alman

I am sitting in the back of the bus
Observing the children play
With the weather just gorgeous
On a very lovely day
A mother of two
Tries to discipline her son
He just would not listen
He just wanted to have fun
As the mother told him to sit down
He raised his foot at her
I couldn't believe what I saw
I was left in a stare
Where is the respect
Has this boy lost his mind
The situation is looking bleak
As the boy's behavior is so unkind

    I wonder why he kicked his mom
    So disrespectful how he made her week
    Nevertheless as he progress not having no respect for his mother
    I just sit here thinking does he have a sister or brother
    Oh well i guess I'm gon leave it alone
    Always remembering to love and respect one another

    Nice poem
