Poem: Respect

Do my attitudes and habits reflect respect?
Or do other’s needs I neglect?

Inside and outside my door am I aware…
I must show that I care!

To other’s needs I must be alert,
If not, I am in danger of acting like a jerk!

Outside my door I must pay attention,
A thoughtless act may cause harmful contention!

I must understand the world is more than me,
I need to practice respect…that’s the key!

As I go about my day,
Respect keeps disregard at bay!

At day’s end did I act with respect…
Or did I act with neglect?

Each day as I arise, 
I must engage respect
for the wellbeing of all I meet!
