Not by Force

Not by Force

we want to be respected
admired for whom we are
a need higher than clothes and shelter
acknowledged by friends and peers

second only to money
we wish to be adored
we forget to give it
while craving for it in full measure

entwined by pride and ego
we demand respect by force
respect is not bought by cash
but earned by issuing it with love
