Honour and Loyalty

Where in today’s society,
is there place for honour?
Where in our world,
does loyalty yield just reward?

Petty men and women,
to whom equality is but a sermon they preach,
will never recompense,
those who dignity will teach.

If we do not honour those,
who with honour themselves conduct,
and if loyalty is not with loyalty met ~
Our legacy will fade,
our names reduced to ash,
and scribbled lines of empty words,
upon rune stones that true worth obstruct.

Honour the loyal men and women,
with the respect they are due,
win over the heart of your foe,
and turn enemy into friend.

Death comes for us all,
without honour,
of immortality we are ~
bereft.

    I love Fredrik’s words about winning over the heart of your foe. It can happen. I had a coworker I couldn’t stand once, but we just had competing priorities. We learned to bring out the best in each other.
