RESPECT
Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

My Spirit runs with Rivers wild
I splash free over rocks
I fly there with Eagle, Hawk...
And Geese who fly in flocks
I am part of all that lives
On Earth, the Air and Sea..
And when I respect all other Life
I, also, respect ME!

My flesh is part of every speck
Of everything, I'm kin...
This Soul of mine is like the next
Destroy any one, a Sin...
Each Breath is Scared from each Soul
That each of us all share...
For each of us is God's Child
And equal does He care!

My beating Heart beats with wings
Of Birds, each stroke they fly...
And like my Heart, their Hearts will stop
When shot....we all will Die!!
We all feel Sadness, suffer Death
God's Tears fall with the Rain!
Each Creature is a Sentient being
Murdered by those insane!

My Life no more important
Than Fish and Mammal, Bird...
We are connected by the Breath
Created by the Word....
I am part of ALL that lives
On Earth, the Air and Sea...
And when I respect all other Life
I, also, respect ME!!.....
