Words for Wednesdays - Respect

Respect

Is respect something the modern
world has obliterated and its people
no longer cherish?
Dare we hope it may
resurface and not with
contempt but pride.

Shall we not confuse it with
tolerance and its negativity
but rather embrace it with
dignity and deference.

Define it with positive
feelings for traditions and
people of authority,
remember it as showing honor where honor
is due.

Respect, worthy of a second chance?
