T.B.H

a poem by Chief DK


TO BE HONEST,

I HAVE NOT BEEN HONORABLE.

TO BE HONORABLE IS TO SPEAK WITH INTENTION.

TO HONOR YOUR WORDS BACKED BY ACTION.

IT MEANS STANDING FOR WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN,

INSPIRING OTHERS TO DO THE SAME.

BEING HONORABLE IS A CODE OF DISCIPLINE, 

INTEGRITY AND COURAGE.

HONOR COMES WHEN ONE HAS

FULFILLED THE RESPONSIBILITY OF SERVING OTHERS.

AN HONORABLE BEING FIGHTS FOR THE WEAK,

EMPOWERING THEM TO BECOME STRONGER. 

SPEAK YOUR TRUTH, MOTIVATE THE MEEK 

WHO HAVE LITTLE CONFIDENCE IN THEIR VOICE.

TO BE HONORABLE 

IS TO HAVE AN ETERNAL COMMITMENT TO A CAUSE

NO MATTER HOW HARD IT GETS.

IT MEANS NEVER GIVING UP.

LIFE MAY PUSH YOU AROUND

BUT IF YOU STAND WITH HONOR

YOU WILL BE BLESSED WITH

THE RESILIENCE TO FIGHT.

HONOR IS NOT IN SURPLUS.

IT IS A PRECIOUS STONE

THAT CAN ONLY BE FOUND

IN THE DEEPEST MINES

OF OUR AUTHENTIC CHARACTER.

IN ORDER TO FIND IT,

WE MUST STRIVE FOR GREATNESS,

NEVER SETTLING

FOR A SHORTCUT OR QUICK ESCAPE

AN HONORABLE PERSON 

IS NOT ONE WHO CLAIMS TO BE

ROYALTY AT THE EXPENSE

OF THE PEOPLES SLAVERY BUT

ONE WHO FIGHTS

TO BRING THE

PEOPLE PROSPERITY.
