R.e.s.p.e.c.t.

My grey’s are brighter than your pearly whites

My years more golden than your hair

Why then my friend did you show me your finger

When all I did was care?

I could have been your mom

I could have been your teacher

I could have been your little sister’s music teacher.

We are human, we make mistakes

Be more tolerant and up your stakes

Show more respect is all I ask

For a better future, For a better life.

I was stuck in traffic and pulled over to the side to merge back later. The goal was to unblock the cars making a left. A young adult on a bike seemingly angry showed me his finger as he zoomed past. This poem is dedicated to him.
