    Do you know what disrespect is?
    Yes, yes, this is a quiz
    Disrespect is pain towards another
    They don’t try. They don’t even bother
    All I have to say is why?
    I show you respect
    Why is that the way you act?
    Just a little bit of consideration is all I ask
    Is that too big of a task?
    I can’t even describe what I feel
    But they don’t care that’s the deal
    I’ll just have to deal with it
    Otherwise, they’ll probably throw a fit
    I’m just stuck in the pit
    These feeling aren’t wrong. They’re legit.
    But what can I do about it
    Nothing, inside it just shouts it
    Playing games all the time
    Causing drama, it should be crime
    In the end my lips move but there is no sound
    I just sink, and sink into the ground
    There’s no compromise I’ve found
    But if it were them they would speak out loud
    So I’m stuck with nothing to say
    I deal with it almost everyday
    But just remember what is disrespect
    When it’s you, you don’t forget
    So please all I ask, just show me a little respect

    One_Love

    Some simply just don't care how others feel, it's all about them, and these people learn the hard way. Your voice speaks out loudly in poetry. Flow on.
