Disrespectful
Written by: Felicia Spencer

AN: This poem was spurned after having an discussion with my 6 year old
nephew about being disrespectful. I thought that I'd take that discussion,
and make a poem from it. I hope you guys/gals like it. R&R. OK.

Being disrespectful is when you turn up your nose
After someone says hello to you
Being disrespectful is not doing everything
That you're momma told you to

Being disrespectful is raising up your voice
And yelling like you've lost your mind
Being disrespectful is always being rude
After someone treats you kind

Being disrespectful is not being appreciative
Of the things that other people do for you
Being disrespectful is telling a lie
Instead of always telling the truth

Being disrespectful is when your hateful
And being filled with petty jealousies
Being disrespectful is when you don't give thanks
To the Lord by kneeling on your knee's

Being disrespectful is when you disrespect yourself
By doing the things that puts you to shame
Being disrespectful is when you hurt your momma
By defaming your family's name

Being disrespectful is when you don't seem to care
It's when you have a sense of total disregard
Being disrespectful is when you lack any respect
For yourself or for the Lord
