CULTURAL RESPECT

If you Want to Be Heard Understood In your Culture
Do you Not See That The Essence of Other Cultures
Need to Be Expressed In your Culture

If you Want For Others To Listen Closely To you Cultural Ways
Do you Not See That Using Other Cultural Expressions as Examples In yours
Need Be Shown Through your Culture

This By Acknowledging Other's Ways Of Seeing
Will Open Doors for Other Cultures To Understand you
This By Understanding Essence In Other Cultures
Will Help Set Free All Cultures To Soar Universally

For All Cultures Capture a Similar Essence Within
For All Cultures Yearn The Same Yearnings
To Be Accepted In Our Societies
To Be Given Same Respect as you Ask

Give Credence To yourself and Others
Give Life Of Forgiveness For and In Others
Give In to Letting Go That your Way Is The Only Way

For In Many Ways and Many Every Ways
Lays The True Essence Leading Back to Same Source

You Are as Unique as The Next
And Within The Cultural Ways ...

Shock With Turmoils Placed Upon Cultures Still Exist
Show Them How They Can Break Old Unwanted Power Hurts

For In Sharing Leading By Example
you Open Doors For Others
In Turn They Open Doors To And For you

We All Bleed ...

Not One Being In Any Given Culture

Similar needs To What's In yours
