Bestow Honor

Honor the yet to be born-
For the enigma they are
And who they will become.

Give honor to the unfinished teen-
They are a work in progress
And for whom they will be when complete.

Bestow honor to the old-
For who they are even in decline.
And who they have been.

Show honor to all-
In doing so
You are defining self.
