    Ill defined perimeters promote familiarity by proximity
    And familiarity fosters contempt
    Redefine distance and demand dignity through decorum
    For dignity cannot be requested, negotiated or deferred
    But like a virus once infected is contagious by nature
    And as long as you remain infected so will those in proximity
    But I would be remiss not to mention that infection is not without price
    And is seldom rewarded and more often condemned and ill assessed on site
    But if dignity be your mantra know that it’s intrinsic worth may be your only reward
    And bull’s-eye will be your new name, because dignity is feared
    And it is easier for the ignorant to destroy that which they cannot understand
    Than to admit that they are whom you have shown them to be through the light of
    Your dignity

    Profound...

    there were so many elements I clung to...
    I couldn't pick just one line...the entire
    peace...within its entirety was wonderful

    Excellent Read!
