Do as I say, not as I did

I sit in my square box of grey walls,  the iron bars 
Zebra ,melancholy shadows across the concrete floor 
I am not a teacher or lecturer ; You don’t have to listen to me
I just want to tell what to do ; before my house is your house

Respect your Parents, your Elders, your Superiors, Yourself and GOD 
Be Honest and Loyal, reach in the recesses of your mind, the Memories
Of your youth, your upbringing, your manners being molded by your parents
There is no one greater than you, there is no one less, Open your Heart

Let Truth and Love emanate it rays to those around you to those YOU LOVE
Do not deceive “ LOVE”, as I have done : Always be fair , Listen to the Ages
Hone Your Morals, now or come join me on my ice cold steel bed If the past
Were given back to me I would follow my Parents’ Principles “I wouldn’t be Here
                                      Assignment : Morals

Inspired by "A Rambling POET'S" Contest  -- " In Search of the Human Mind "

    Nice write. I really like the last line of the second stanza, 'There is no one greater than you, there is no one less, Open your Heart.' If only more people truly thought that way....I mean sincerely, truly lived by that code, beyond just paying lip service, this present era would be far more magnificent.
