>Elderly Love & Respect

>What has happened to love and respect
Did we forget to teach the generation that came next
Young ones lying in wait to disrespect their elders
Preyed upon like victims without protection or shelters
Some of us forgot to teach them to honor the old
Or how we must protect them and treat them like gold
For it is they who has the Honor to longevity
It is they who deserve the best of our integrity
They have walked a long journey seeing the good and the bad
They have stood up to fight for the rights that we’ve had
They’ve been Mothers and Fathers to Grandchildren alike
Holding families together with all of their might
They have weathered all storms that came from the system
To being news worthy articles to now be called “The Victim”
Being raped, robbed, and beaten with such disrespect
It makes you seriously wonder what comes next.
