Poem: No Respect

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"No Respect" is a poem about youngsters today having no respect for elders.

As she watches them her thoughts go on overdrive.

She feels like she's in the Exorcist with her head spinning wanting to lash out.

She wants to wake up their ungrateful souls.

"Tyler Perry's I Can Do Bad All By Myself - by Lions Gate Movies""

No Respect

Her thoughts on overdrive

watching arrogant youngsters

with empty hearts,

have no respect for their elders,

thinking the world revolves for them.

Her head spinning

like she’s in a scene from the Exorcist,

the top of her head in excruciating pain

like a volcano about to erupt.

Breathless with anger,

rage flowing like lava through her veins,

her tongue wanting to lash out

words of wisdom,

hoping to wake up their ungrateful souls.
