Fire and Ice, flames and icebergs,
One hot, one cold, yet both of them burn,
Two extremes, both have their uses,
But only harm comes from elemental abuses.
When respect is not shown to each spectral end,
They’ll show you the might they embody, my friend,
Approach them with caution, handle with care,
Don’t risk it for a chocolate biscuit or a dare.

Things are rarely black and white, but if you wish to be treated with respect, then you must also treat others with respect, regardless of your perceptions of them, or your beliefs about how different they are to you.
My mind steers towards the impact of racism, sexism, and all manner of other discriminatory cultures and alienating habits, on those in receipt of them, and the knock on effect reflected back into the surrounding environment.
Well, in the same manner, both fire and ice have the power to either create life, or to extinguish it, what impacts these results, that are literally poles apart? …the respect they are shown, and the parameters within which they’re encouraged to interact with us and our surroundings.
Think about how this insight applies to every factor of your life, it could potentially save you unnecessary harm, and infuse your life with so many positive outcomes.
Love and Respect always,
