Recollect Your Respect

You know the power you have, any moment can be transformed
A different tone, the look in your eye, the words you choose to use
A sharp tone with words of blame, a look of contempt, a sneer
Is a stab in the heart, a lump in the throat, shameful choked back tears
Open wide with heart on sleeve it goes straight through to the soul
A moment’s pause, recollect your respect, it will come right back to you
