Self Respect

I stand in the crowd, observing their faces

And I feel their fear, their perceived, covered bases

Society dictates, that we all toe the line

And woe and behold those, who deem to decline

It takes courage and guile, to carve your own path

When projections and opinions, can litter your hearth

Yet our purpose in life, is to discern our own way

To gain self-perception, to not let your thoughts stray

To know that there are, hard lessons to learn

It is our own self-respect, that we all have to earn

So suspend what you think, what you think you should do

In this way, to your heart and self, you’ll be true
