A Thing You Must Give To Receive

Respect is a thing you must give to receive
This is something that ought not be hard to believe
It is something that has for to be shared by two
How can you respect one who disrespects you
The one who disrespects you in time you may forgive
But you will remember for as long as you live
That she or he unkind things of you did say
Insult from the memory does not fade away
That a person remembers a verbal offense
Is not saying anything new just plain common sense
Though insult can be forgiven memories of it stay in the mind
You lose respect for those who to you are unkind
Respect is a thing you must give to receive
This is something that should not be hard to believe.
