Sacred elixir of cultures past,

glue of friendship and family;

Respect is how we bond,

Honor is the key.


With respect, comes harmony,

a graceful getting along;

It venerates our voices together,

as we sing our song;


With out respect, there is no hope,

of relationship that will last;

Groups fall into disarray,

Chaos comes to pass.


So honor each other with voice and deed,

and give forth the homage thatís due;

Reverence will come reflecting back,

as respect goes shining through.
